As a department, we are committed to providing continuing education for faculty and students on issues relevant to equity, diversity, and inclusion. Below you will find information from recent events.
In Spring 2019, the Psychology Department held its first annual Diversity Event, which was focused on reducing the impact of microaggressions in academic settings. We were lead by UNCG's Office of Intercultural Engagement. This new annual event is made possible by the Norm Anderson fund.
