Diversity and Inclusion Training at Smith

Smith facilitates a variety of training modules for all incoming undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff, academic departments and administrative units and centers. Topics are customized as requested and center on identity, privilege, bias, ally behavior, self-care, anti-racism, civility and social movements. Each session includes a curated list of additional resources for those who wish to delve deeper into their learning.

Our Diversity and Inclusion team is committed to strategically and methodically assessing and improving the way we demonstrate inclusion and equity at Smith. Our team can facilitate training in several areas, including, but not limited to:

  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Implicit Bias
