Supporting Educational Excellence in Diversity


The Office for Health Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in coordination with the Office of Continuing Medical Education is offering a four-part hybrid (online and in class) training for SEED: Supporting Educational Excellence in Diversity.

Upon completion of this series, participants will be able to apply cultural humility to empower their teaching, identify the key elements of curricular content that contribute to the cultural microaggressions that impede learning and develop self-management and communications skills to navigate difficult interactions that impact cultural safety.

Attendees will be participating in a positive and nonjudgmental faculty development environment that combines online learning with in-person cohort discussions.

Audience: All Instructors on Record (IORs) and faculty.
