Diversity Education & Training

Our diversity education and training programs are designed to encourage dialogue and interaction among students about issues related to diversity. We believe that an understanding of the differences and similarities that Columbia community members bring to our campus make for better relationships between community members and a richer educational environment. Taking a proactive rather than reactive approach to diversity education, we seek to build competencies and thought processes among Columbia students that prepare them for living in a diverse community at Columbia and beyond. Diversity education takes many forms at Columbia including facilitated discussions, workshops, guest speakers and more.
