Equity-Based Education & Trainings

Check out the trainings we're currently offering!

The Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) is offering new trainings! We have updated our former curriculum into a multilevel workshop series for students, starting with our Level One Training, The Bare Minimum: Introduction to DEI Language and Framework.

This intro training is designed for KU students (undergraduate and graduate) who might be new to DEI language and looking to solidify their understandings before engaging in deeper topics like Social Justice, White Supremacy, Anti Blackness and Organizing.

Topics will include: Social Identities | The isms | Equity vs Equality vs Justice | and more.

Students can sign up training dates by following the buttons below. Subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know we release our Level 2 training times and dates.

Please Note:

  • All trainings will be held in the SMRC Classroom; however, the OMA staff reserves the right to switch a training date to a Virtual/Zoom Platform. If you have questions about accommodations, or accessibilities questions, please feel free to reach out to Cierra Roberson with any additional questions, requests, or concerns at csroberson@ku.edu 


  • We do not currently schedule specific group trainings, if you would like to have your organization participate in a Bare Minimum Training, please have each member individually register for a date that best suits their schedule.
