D360 is a campus-wide diversity education program for students, faculty and staff developed by the Office of Multicultural Affairs and facilitated currently by OMA and the Office for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity.
Diversity 360 has been implemented and customized into modules for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff that will assist the campus community in advancing its efforts to be a welcoming, inclusive environment for learning, leading, and innovation.
Based on research from higher education and the corporate sector about cross-cultural competency and on results from university climate surveys, the modules will engage participants in learning to:
- Increase capacity to recognize and engage in dialogue across the breadth of differences;
- Deepen understanding of how affiliations in privileged and marginalized groups impact treatment on campus, campus climate and productivity;
- Deepen awareness of types of microaggressions and how they affect experiences on campus and in the local community; and
- Discover ways to become a change agent and diversity champion with new knowledge, ideas and resources about university policies, programs and best practices
