The core effort of the Institute for Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Transformative Practice is to work with individuals and groups, on campus and beyond, to better understand issues of identity and to better communicate across differences. To these ends we strive to create spaces to learn concepts, share ideas, ask questions, and honor the many experiences and identities that coexist in our community.
Recent Work and Workshops
During Laker Launch 2021 , all first-year students participated in workshops to understand SUNY Oswego's commitment to an inclusive community. Participants explored personal and social identity, understanding bias, and the practice of cultural humility.
DEI training was offered across summer 2021 to Laker Leaders, EOP Peer Leaders, First Year Success Coaches, Peer Educators, and Laker Links on topics including identifying and addressing microaggressions and dialogue practice on the topic of free speech on an inclusive campus.
Beginning in fall 2020, an asynchronous education module covering diversity, equity, and inclusion resources, concepts, and expectations was embedded into every incoming student's online orientation experience.
