Today: There is still time to become a DEI champion!

Are YOU a DEI Champion yet?

The DEI Champion Badges are designed to encourage, support, and recognize faculty and staff participation in diversity, equity and inclusion efforts here at John Carroll University.

All members of the JCU faculty and staff, including part-time and temporary staff and graduate assistants, are eligible to become DEI Champions. Over 100 JCU employees are already registered for the program, and 34 have earned badges over the course of this year. There is still time to join the program and earn points towards a 2021-2022 DEI Champions badge!

All DEI Champions will be recognized at a campus luncheon on May 19. Invitations to the luncheon will be extended to any employee who has earned DEI champions points this year. There is still time to sign up, earn points, and join us!

If you have already registered for the program, log in to Canvas and check your points. Have you given yourself credit for everything you are doing? Here are a few examples of some things participants can do to earn DEI Champion points:

Participate in a community book read
Attend a DEI-focused program, training or workshop on or off campus
Attend a DEI-related social or community-building event
Complete an online training module or workshop
