Each day builds on the prior session. MI is a terrific tool for helping people change behavior. It's an especially helpful tool for medical staff (lifestyle changes and medication adherence), therapists/counselors, Student Life advisers, supervisors and more. Learn basic, foundational skills for MI, including spirit, OARS (open question, affirmations, reflections, summaries), identifying and responding to change talk and discord. Lots of practice in "real plays" (you get to work on your own behavior changes that you are ambivalent about). While you won't be an expert at MI when you are done, you will be able to start the practice, know how to get good at it and maybe even want to learn more!

Each year, Diversity and Inclusion offers a staff dialogue series called Fundamentals of Diversity and Inclusion for Staff Class. The goal of the series is to offer both new and seasoned staff a professional development opportunity to delve deeper into diversity and inclusion topics. During the series, we will explore and discuss issues of identity, power, privilege and ally-ing within the context of working with diverse students and colleagues.

The course examines these topics and the work through three modules:
Self Reflection, Exploration, and Sharing
Societal Power, Privilege and Oppression
Practical Application, Allying, Applying Concepts
These modules will emphasize the importance of the work for higher education professional staff, and the assembly version will focus on this work through the focus of leading a department, role modeling, and supervision.

In the Winter we offer a section for senior leadership members that allow us to dive into what this work means for us as senior leadership in Student Life; we specifically add conversations around supervision, trouble shooting, dynamics in your unit, and role modeling for our staff. In order to fully benefit from the collective knowledge of the group via dialogue, we ask each participant to commit to the full series. We know both anticipated and unexpected things may arise, but the goal is not to miss more than 1 session. We cap the number of participants intentionally to ensure that there is space for dialogue and shared learning, our cap for this section will be 12 people.

Class Level: Beginner - Advanced
