Implicit Bias

The University strongly supports a diverse and inclusive environment. Towards that goal, the Office of the Provost frequently offers seminars and workshops on Implicit Bias.  We all have tendencies towards bias, but it is the Implicit Bias that can influence how people respond to others based on their personal characteristics or backgrounds.  We encourage you to take advantage of these offerings. For convenience, we recorded some of these sessions, which are described and linked below.
