Cultural Competency Training Seminars

The UW System educates a diverse range of students, some of whom experience the negative effects of marginalization due to being a member of one or more under-represented identity group. Students have expressed a desire to have staff in direct service positions on campus that mirror the diversity of the student population and are well-versed in the challenges, needs and issues faces by underrepresented and marginalized student groups. In 2020, UW System President Ray Cross approved a behavioral health workgroup recommendation to sponsor annual training opportunities to enhance the cultural competency of counseling, health, and other student services staff.
