A CAMPUS OF DIFFERENCE™ is a leading provider in the development and delivery of anti-bias training and resources for college and university campuses throughout the United States. Together, campus leaders explore the impact of stereotypes, bias and discrimination on individuals and on the entire campus climate. Building on this awareness, they are able to identify effective strategies to respond effectively to bias, implement effective policies on campus, and inspire students to speak out and become the advocates and voices of positive change on campus. A CAMPUS OF DIFFERENCE™ workshops are helping establish more welcoming, inclusive and diverse environments where young adults have true opportunities to reach for their fullest potential as global citizens and leaders of tomorrow.
Members of campus communities face many challenges as they struggle to create environments where diversity is truly valued and respected. Incidents of hate, bias, and bullying; concerning attitudes of incivility and exclusion; intergroup tensions and conflicts; and hate speech are all issues campus leaders face every day.
In order for the campus to become a cohesive community, addressing these issues must be part of a campus strategic plan. Campuses today must engage in multifaceted approaches that involve learning in and out of the classroom. This effort requires unprecedented cooperation from all members of the faculty, staff, and administration as well as careful understanding and sensitivity to the needs of all students. In short, campus community members need to work together.
Workshops are customized to meet the specific goals and organizational needs of the college and university campus community. Programs include:
To date, over 56,000 faculty, staff, administrators and students on 900 college and university campuses nationwide have participated in A CAMPUS OF DIFFERENCE™

"By the end of the training, students underwent a process of self-reflection and were moved to becoming social action allies and change agents on campus. I recommend this program to any institution wishing to make a real difference on their campus."
