UGA pilot program to focus on diversity

Work to be done virtually

The University of Georgia says a pilot program launching this month will further the University’s efforts at diversity. Based on recommendations issued by the Taskforce on Race, Ethnicity, and Community, a committee established last year by UGA President Jere Morehead UGA is implementing Reflective Structured Dialogue training, beginning this year with two groups of faculty and staff.

This pilot training is designed to equip faculty and staff with the knowledge to incorporate these dialogue skills into their respective units across campus.

Individuals selected for the pilot groups represent a cross-section of UGA’s various schools, colleges and units and were nominated by their respective deans and vice presidents.

Taking place in a virtual format over two days, the first group will complete the pilot program in April and the second will complete the program in May. Following completion of the training, UGA will conduct evaluations to assess how faculty and staff apply the principles and processes learned through this pilot program.

The UGA Office of the President is providing financial support for the pilot program, which will be conducted by the J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development, a unit of UGA Public Service and Outreach.
