Trainings and Workshops
Racial Healing Circles
A Racial Healing Circle is an opportunity for individuals from diverse backgrounds to share their stories in a safe, brave, and responsible space. The Racial Healing Circles are facilitated by trained RHC Practitioners. Each circle is designed for specialized audiences and particular goals based on the group, organization, and/or institution.
Green Zone – Military Cultural Competency Education Session
In studies conducted at colleges and universities nationwide, military-affiliated students reported feeling that other members of their campus community did not appreciate, understand, or respect their service. The training provides the Rutgers community and our partners with a general overview of military culture, structure and norms that govern those who serve and impact their transition from the military to college and the workplace. Professionals and students will walk away with the knowledge to more easily communicate with our military-affiliated students.
Safe(R) Space Training
Safe(R) Space is a campus wide program designed to visibly identify students, staff, and faculty peers who support the LGBTQIA population, understand some of the issues facing LGBTQIA individuals, and are aware of various LGBTQIA-affirming resources on campus.

Office of Information Technology Accesibility is provided general web and digital accessibility training sessions. At the end of these sessions, attendees should be able to:
- Understand policies set by Rutgers regarding web and digital accessibility.
- Use scanning tools to test for accessibility issues on websites and documents.

- Understand common issues and how to fix them.
- Learn how to include accessibility during early site development efforts.
Microaggressions: Impact and Interventions
What are microaggressions and how do they impact staff, faculty and student experiences at Rutgers? This training explores how these daily verbal, behavioral or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, perpetuate negative stereotypes and cause harm. Participants will gain skills to identify and interrupt microaggressions, explore ways to ‘call-in’ colleagues and utilize microaffirmations to foster a safer and more inclusive community. This workshop was developed using an intersectional lens and seeks to amplify and prioritize voices of BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and other marginalized staff and faculty, who are disproportionately impacted by implicit bias and microaggressions.
