Equity & Inclusive Excellence Resources for Faculty & Staff

All faculty and staff can use these resources to help our institution more equitable for all.

In addition, take a look at the student resources. This will help you be more informed and better able to connect students with resources they may need. 

Equity 2023 Resources

Equity 2030 Collective Action resources are currently being developed for WSU faculty and staff. 

Contact the Equity & Inclusive Excellence team to learn how to use these resources and implement recommendations. 

Syllabus Statements

All faculty are encouraged to put these statements on their class syllabi to demonstrate their commitment to equity.

College Liaisons

The Equity & Inclusive Excellence staff also serve as liaisons to the academic colleges. 

They can help you respond to retention concerns and other issues, as well as offer guidance for recruitment outreach to attract new students.

Safe Space Training

Safe Space Training is a campus-wide program hosted by the Equity & Inclusive Excellence Office and Full Spectrum Student Alliance to create an inclusive and affirmative University community.

With Safe Space training, you can learn to be more intentional about creating spaces that are welcoming to everyone –especially for students, faculty, and staff who identify as LGBTQIA+.

The Safe Space Training Registration Form has upcoming dates, or you can request a private group training. 

You can also email at equity@winona.edu for more information. 

Race Matters: Cultural Competency Training

Race Matters is a year-long cohort of faculty and staff who engage in meaningful dialogue to better understand how race has come to shape our lives.

Through podcasts, articles, videos and more, we’ll focus on the ways in which race influences the environments and structures around us. We’ll also explore how we are situated within these environments.

We will investigate how systemic racism intersects with history, labor rights, housing, education, white privilege, intersectionality, and media representation.

During the Race Matters training series, we will build relationships, tell stories, and equip people to be advocates.

University Resources

The WSU Inclusive Excellence Strategic Plan (PDF) provides a comprehensive action plan to prioritize and enact practices for diversity, inclusion and cultural competence within our campus community.

The Inclusive Excellence Committee works to bring equity and inclusive excellence to all aspects of university life. If you have ideas, you can reach out to one of the committee members or consider joining the committee yourself. 

Job Search & Recruitment Resources

Learn what it means to practice inclusive recruitment, and feel free to contact the Equity & Inclusive Excellence team if you have any questions. 

If you are on a search committee, we recommend posting open positions on these sites to expand the applicant pool. Some of these job boards do charge a fee for posting or membership.

Out and Equal has information about how to fully support LGBTQ equality in the workplace. 

The Asian Pacific Americans in Higher Education offers resources to support employees who are part of the AAPI community.
