How do you foster teaching and learning environments that create greater teamwork, support and productivity? Looking for tools and strategies to challenge racism and discrimination?

Join the STEM TRAIL Center and Center for Faculty Excellence for a two-day workshop led by the Racial Equity Institute (REI).


About the Workshop

Grounded in a historical, cultural, and structural analysis of racism, the workshop covers REI’s fish/lake/groundwater analysis approach, understanding and controlling implicit bias, and more. Participants will build upon this foundation by connecting concepts and strategies to teaching and learning.



All full-time faculty are eligible to participate. Individuals must apply to participate as space is limited. Nominations of colleagues who would contribute to this conversation in a meaningful way are also encouraged.


Earn Professional Development Funds

Individuals selected to participate will earn professional development funds.


Apply or Nominate Someone

Apply for yourself or to nominate another for either fall or spring workshop.

Applications not selected for fall will be considered for spring (March 15-16, 2021).

Application / Nomination Deadline: Thursday, Sept. 10.
