NC State’s National Coalition Building Institute team educates students and employees about discrimination, harassment, prejudice and diversity.
The National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) states that “…an effective diversity training program must teach conflict resolution skills; effective listening; how to manage dialogue across group lines; and a rationale for creating a welcoming workplace that becomes everyone’s responsibility.”
Whether you participate in a one-day NCBI workshop or semester-long class, cultural competence skills are a must for today’s global workplace. Will you be the example you need to be when the moment arises? The NC State NCBI team also teaches the USC 240 undergraduate course, which is based on NCBI principles.
Dedicated faculty, staff and students who commit to making a difference in our community comprise the NC State NCBI team. This group of volunteers facilitates workshops and works to achieve team goals.
NC State’s team of NCBI facilitators is trained to deploy a community response model in times of crisis. The team also teaches the Finding Common Ground: From Conflict to Coalition Building workshop, which examines controversial issues through a positive process and helps participants work toward common solutions.
