Tips for Faculty and Staff        

The materials on this site are based on the Tilford Group multicultural competencies and subsequent research. We understand that working with issues of diversity is complex, challenging, and requires time and support to produce positive, useful results. Here are a few suggestions as you begin to use the site:

  • The navigation bar at the upper left will lead you to the materials and resources. Please take a minute to explore the possibilities.
  • The site offers a wide range of strategies and information to apply in your classrooms. Keep in mind that the activities for students on this site are designed to be facilitated by faculty members.
  • We recommend that you help your students begin their personal multicultural journeys in the "Identity Development" section under Resources for Educators.
