For Internal Organizations
Thank you for your interest in the Multicultural Education Program and for your request for MEP workshops and/or consulting. We are dedicated to helping your unit or department meet UC Berkeley’s equity and inclusion goals. We are a passionate but small unit with a limited amount of human resources. We often rely on a group of trained volunteer facilitators to fulfill training requests.
For External Organizations
Thank you for your interest in the Multicultural Education Program (MEP) at UC Berkeley. The Staff Diversity Initiatives team in the Equity & Inclusion Division responds to requests for MEP workshops and/or consulting. Please complete the request form so that we have some preliminary information to assist us in responding to your request. We rely on a group of trained campus volunteer facilitators to fulfill training requests, and therefore will require at least two months lead time to deliver training. Depending on the nature of the request, consulting services may be provided sooner.
General Guidelines for All
To provide you with the best experience possible, please provide us with some information that will help us assess your needs.
Before you submit your request, please review:
- The general purpose of the MEP consulting services are to assist campus and community members with training and consultation related to issues of human diversity, equity and inclusion at the University of California, Berkeley.
- If you are not sure if you would like a consultation or a specific workshop, go ahead and fill out the request form and provide as much information as possible about your group or situation.
- Workshops/presentations/facilitated experiences seek to create interactive space to engage in discussions about campus climate, group interactions, multicultural issues, diversity, human difference, and social identity, among other topics. (For Internal Organizations: If your organization is seeking mediation of a current conflict, the Student Ombuds Office and the Staff Ombuds Office are great resources).
- Please keep in mind that we typically need to receive workshop requests at least 2 months in advance from the intended workshop date. If you would like a custom workshop, please note that additional time will be required for development.
