Diversity 101

Join Student Life and Leadership as we discuss the basics of diversity. How does diversity affect me?  Could understanding my identity and learning about others help me in my chosen career path?  Are all biases bad?  This is a safe space event where you can ask questions and learn more about diversity in a very real practical way.  The best way for all of us to create a culture of inclusion is by learning from each other.  Don’t miss out when the Diversity 101 Workshops are offered!

Student Diversity Retreat

The knowledge and skills necessary to navigate an increasingly diverse campus and interconnected world are substantial. The Student Diversity retreat is designed to equip students with a variety of tools and resources necessary to navigate differing environments, address challenges in the workplace and learn ways to contribute to the creation of diverse and inclusive spaces.  The Student Diversity Retreat is offered in the fall term.

Diversity Certificate

During the spring term, FSCJ will be offering a number of diversity and inclusion workshops, both in-person and online, to provide real-life strategies to help students navigate college, the workplace, and the world around them.  Students that complete the workshops will have the opportunity to earn a Diversity Certificate.  Workshop topics include:

  • Am I Biased?
  • Diversity 101
  • Safe Space Student Training
  • Working with Diverse Populations

K.I.N.G.S. (Keys to Inspiring Noble Gentlemen to Succeed) and Project C.L.A.S.S.

The scholarship is awarded to the individual who demonstrates the most significant development during the course of the program.

The Forum

The Forum is a virtual conference designed to engage our diverse population of students in a bevy of workshops to address identified barriers to success. The forum is offered during the fall and spring terms.  We will be offering eight workshops touching on everything from personal branding to academic achievement. Students will be given a certificate that they can list on their resume and/or co-curricular transcript.
