DEI Education & Outreach Programs

Monthly Programs

The Office of DEI Education & Outreach has developed new educational programs for the campus community that aim to foster a culture of belonging at UCCS. There are three programs hosted monthly. Read more about them below, or click Learn More above to visit our MLC page and register for individual events.

Inclusive Belonging Spotlight Series

The Inclusive Belonging Spotlight Series explores the impactful DEI efforts of UCCS departments, individuals, and organizations in Colorado Springs. Each month, members of our community can learn over a cup of coffee and pastries about DEI initiatives happening across campus and engage in insightful conversations on creating a deeper sense of belonging at UCCS.

DEI Munch & Learn

The Munch and Learn Series is focused on DEI education and awareness centered around each heritage and identity month. Participants will learn from UCCS faculty members and local community organizations on the work they are doing that centers diverse identities and cultures. Participants will also be able to engage in discussion and enjoy themed food around the month’s topic.

Story Hour

The Heritage Month Story Hour events are designed for the preschool class at the Family Development Center on the UCCS campus. When the students come for a library visit, the Outreach & Instruction Librarian reads a children's book aligned with the heritage or identity month, and a student group plans a small activity.
