Faculty & Staff Resources

The RISE Center recognizes the critical role an equity-minded and culturally competent faculty and staff play in ensuring student retention, success, and completion. Therefore, the center offers a number of workshops catered to compliment pre-existing curriculum that can be brought into classrooms for faculty, while also providing trainings in collaboration with LWTech Professional Development for both faculty and staff.

Classroom Workshops

Upon request, RISE Center staff can present on topics related to equity, diversity, and inclusion to your students. Workshops are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis and the RISE Center will need at least three weeks’ notice to accommodate requests. Workshops typically run from a half-hour to one hour in length. Available topics currently include:

Topics may be adjusted to fit the needs of your students based on field of study. To submit a request for a workshop, complete a form (coming soon!). Questions about classroom workshop may be directed to Eric Izaguirre, Coordinator, Equity and Inclusion at eric.izaguirre@lwtech.edu.
