PLEASE NOTE:Due to staff transition and a high demand of workshops, we are unable to guarantee requests made for facilitations for the month of January. Someone will be in touch with you if we are unable to schedule your workshop on the requested dates.
Should you have any questions about the above information or the request form as you complete it, please contact Bowen Marshall (email@example.com), Associate Director in the Multicultural Center.
All workshops require PowerPoint capability, internet access, and sound. If other accommodations are required (e.g. copies, computer, etc.) the facilitator will inform the requesting party. All equipment should be set up at least 15 minutes prior to the workshop's start time so that the facilitator can pull up any materials on the computer and to ensure starting on time.
Unless otherwise noted, you should expect all workshops to last approximately one hour in length. We are able to tailor the content to fit a 45-minute time frame or to last longer than one hour, but we are unable to fulfill requests made for a time frame that lasts for fewer than 45 minutes.
Details about what each workshop entails and the appropriate audience for each can be found here: http://mcc.osu.edu/education-and-training/buck-identity-workshops/
Resident Advisors/Student Organizations: Our team would be pleased to assist with your next program! We ask that RAs work in pairs for the planning and marketing of each residence hall workshop. Each request form should include the names of all collaborators for the event. Please be sure to include specific information about the program and its location.
Since we are student-centered office, please note that students receive priority in our request system. Learning and Development (https://gatewaytolearning.osu.edu) within the Office of Human Resources is a great resource for staff and faculty workshops focused on diversity and inclusion. In the event that we cannot accommodate you, we are happy to refer you to them.
Open Doors requests will be passed on to our Program Specialist for Open Doors, Hannah Simonetti (firstname.lastname@example.org), and she will contact you about scheduling it.
