Diversity Education Services

Throughout the year, EOI sponsors a variety of programs, services and activities designed to enhance, educate and celebrate the diverse and multicultural environment of the campus and the Flint area community. Typical events sponsored and supported by EOI, often in collaboration with other offices and departments, include Hispanic Heritage Month, Native American Heritage Month, and African American Heritage Month. In addition, special projects and programs are frequently offered to address campus-wide concerns and social issues pertaining to diversity, cultural competency issues, fairness and equity. Previous programs offered have included anti-racism and interracial communications programs, facilitated diversity education and anti-racism workshops and discussion groups.

Collaborations with external organizations with similar aims and goals have included FACTER (Flint Area Citizens To End Racism), Leadership Development in Interethnic Relations (LDIR), The Opportunity Network, Volunteers for Affirmative Action, Genesee Valley Indian Association, the Hispanic/Latino Collaborative, the Spanish Speaking Information Center, the Flint Library Anti-Racism Speaker Series, the Color Line Project, the Urban Bush Women Project, the People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond Undoing Racism workshops, Story Circles, Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health-Phase II (REACH 2010) and Community Cultural Planning Task Force to name several initiatives.
