Multicultural Affairs: Education & Training

Multicultural Affairs provides educational opportunities for the USC Upstate community. We engage members of the campus community in educationally-structured learning activities to challenge stereotypical modes of thinking.

We also strive to promote positive interactions among members of the campus community to foster intellectual and social development that invites the robust exchange of ideas.

This office provides:

Diversity Training – Our staff visits classrooms, staff training sessions, and workshops to facilitate discussions about how to become more aware of and appreciate the individual differences within one another.

Group Activities – Our staff coordinates activities to assist your staff, group or class with becoming more acquainted with one another. We will assist in helping your team to realize the strengths and perspectives they all bring to the table.

Safe Zone Training – Our staff coordinates Safe Zone Training workshops designed to support the LGBTQ population at the University and educate people on LGBTQ issues. For more information, please visit the Safe Zone Training webpage.
