Reminder: Complete Required Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Course- Due Wednesday 4/8/2020

The deadline for the required “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for Students” online course is Wednesday, April 8, 2020. This is a reminder to complete the online course. Use the following URL in your preferred web browser to continue and complete the course: https://appserv.jcu.edu/everfi/index.py/diversity

We are pleased to see a majority of the student body in the process of completing or done with the requirement. In the online course, students have:

– Learned about key concepts related to identity, bias, power, privilege, and oppression.
– Understood the benefits of being part of a diverse community.
– Developed classroom and workplace skills related to ally behavior, self-care, and creating inclusive spaces.

Becoming more aware of issues of bias, prejudice, and inclusion is more vital now than ever. In addition, diversity, equity, and inclusion are fundamental elements of JCU’s mission and values, and central to a strong Jesuit education. We hope you understand that although the timing might feel strained, the intent and purpose is still necessary, and every participant is the better for it, not just here at JCU, but as you go on to make an impact in the world.

Please note:

-Students who completed the course last fall 2019 have met the requirement but will need to complete part 2 if they haven’t done so already.

-Students who are also JCU staff/faculty are exempt from the requirement since they already completed the online training for staff/faculty earlier this year.

Thank you so much for your time and energy. Continue to look out for yourself and others during this quickly changing and tumultuous time. Contact diversity@jcu.edu or csdi@jcu.edu if you have any questions. Take care!
