Education and 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. 

Serving as the Prevention, Education, and Training Coordinator, Karissa Stolen works tirelessly to coordinate these efforts on behalf of the OE. She is responsible for providing supportive guidance, departmental training, and educational resources that support the OE's mission to stop, prevent, and remedy any instances of discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct, and related retaliation.
