    Diversity/Inclusion Program for Faculty and Staff

    August 11, 2020
    "We must do more and do better to create a community where all can feel welcome and safe always.”- University President Scott R. Pilarz, S.J.

    The Office of Equity and Diversity, in collaboration with the Cross Cultural Centers, the Counseling and Human Services Department, and the Staff Senate are pleased to offer a new format for the Diversity and Inclusion Lunch/Learn Series for fall 2020. You are encouraged to participate in each segment to get the full experience.

    The three-part program will begin with the launch of the SafeColleges course “Implicit Bias and Microaggression Awareness.” All faculty and staff will receive this suggested training in their scranton.edu email on Aug. 3, 2020.

    After completing the 21-minute course, you may register for Part 2 - the Panel Discussion, which will be held Friday, Sept. 18 @ 12:00 p.m. Please register here. At the end of your registration, contained in the confirmation screen, you will have the option to submit questions via the Anonymous Questions Submission Form link. Your identifying information will not be associated with the questions you submit.

    Part 3 - Small Group Discussions will be scheduled post-panel according to the availability of the persons who are interested in participating.

    We encourage all faculty and staff to view the SafeColleges course even if they are not interested in participating in the Lunch and Learn Series. Check you scranton.edu inbox for the link to the training, or go to scranton-pa.safecolleges.com and use your Royal ID number to login.

    Questions regarding the program may be sent to Elizabeth.garcia2@scranton.edu. Questions regarding the registration and forms may be sent to Jennifer.pennington@scranton.edu.

    We look forward to sharing this important experience with you and working to make our campus more inclusive for everyone!
