Education & Training

Diversity is a core value at CU Denver and CU Anschutz. As stated in our Strategic Plan, "To succeed, the working group must recognize the strength of diverse communities and perspectives. We must continue and enhance our commitment to creating an inclusive culture in pursuit of our goals of excellence and meeting the needs of the state, nation and world." 

As a University, we are committed to the development of an inclusive campus culture, where diversity is coupled with the principles of value, trust, and respect. 

In the Office of Equity (OE) we believe a significant aspect in creating an inclusive campus culture starts with proactive education and training initiatives. As such, we offer a wide-range of educational support as needed to our dual-campus constituents.
