Initiatives for Diversity Education and Action

The Diversity Action Team (DAT) has designed a continuing education program for the Division of Student Life employees.  Initiatives for Diversity Education and Action (IDEA) was debuted to the Division on September 20, 2007.  In the spirit of seeking MAGIS (or ?more?) from ourselves and others, the Division is calling its members to promote self-awareness and diversity competency.  In doing so, we are empowered to promote a climate of acceptance and respect, recognizing the dignity of all persons in the University Community, and those served by the University Community.

Event Calendars


Program Details

Each employee in the Division is required to complete eight continuing education units (CEUs) during a calendar year (roughly eight hours of approved IDEA programs/events).  Attendance will be tracked by DAT and provided to managers/directors to be incorporated into Annual Performance Reviews.  A calendar of events is located on this website to assist staff members in selecting events and programs that enhance one?s diversity competency.
