Diversity and Inclusion at Loyola

Signature Training Series

Are you interested in taking a diversity and inclusion focused course, or a collection of classes, designed to provide you with skills and competencies in the areas of leadership, management, and/or personal development? The Executive Council on Diversity and Inclusion's Education, Development, and Awareness committee is excited to bring to you a series of training opportunities each month. 

Diverse backgrounds (i.e. cultural experiences) and learning styles have a direct impact on scholarship, culture, and sociological developments amongst peers in both the classroom and/or workplace. Each month, complimentary on-demand Hoonuit courses will be utilized to learn best practices regarding how to support diverse learners in the classroom and workplace.
