Safe Zone and Cultivating Inclusion professional development sessions are offered twice a year and do require registration.

Events and Initiatives Co-Sponsorships

The Center conducts outreach through an active presence on social media and maintains an equity and inclusion events calendar. We can be an avenue to advertise your programs to a campus-wide audience or provide a co-sponsorship if the program falls within the umbrella of social justice, diversity, and inclusion.  If you would like to collaborate with the center on a specific program or initiative, please email us at intercultural@monmouth.edu.

Campus Partnerships

The Center works to support groups across campus who are committed to advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion. We encourage you to explore the many community groups on campus that work to build opportunities for networking, programming, and scholarly collaboration including The Black and African Diaspora Forum United and the Program for Gender and Intersectionality Studies
