Online Learning Modules

In order to expand our education offerings related to Goal 2, UMD has partnered with EVERFI, a community engagement operating system. These online modules focus on critical topics related to diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice and are available for students, staff and faculty at UMD.  

Staff/Faculty Modules:

  1. Diversity: Inclusion in the Modern Workplace
  2. Implicit Bias training modules

Each module takes 60-90 minutes to complete and includes multiple sections that are interactive and encourage reflection. Participants are encouraged to set aside 20-30 minutes at a time to work through the modules in sections. This will allow for a deeper understanding and reflection of the material.

To sign up for the modules, please email Susana Pelayo-Woodward at swoodwar@d.umn.edu. Include Everfi Module in your subject heading and include the following information: Name, email address, and whether you are a supervisor or non-supervising employee. 

Student Modules:

The module; Diversity, Equity & Inclusion for students focuses on the expectation that students will be engaged as members of a diverse and inclusive community, while providing important tools that they can use throughout their personal journey. 

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion for Students explores the following topics: 

• Equity

• Power, Privilege and Oppression 

• Identity and Selfhood  

The topic of diversity, equity & inclusion has significant importance for college students who often enter college ill-equipped at understanding their own identity, the identity of others, as well as how to communicate around areas of diversity, equity & inclusion. 

UMD faculty and instructors are invited to use these modules in your classes. A resource guide to use with the modules is also available upon request.

To sign yourself, or your students, up for the modules, please email Susana Pelayo-Woodward at swoodwar@d.umn.edu. Include Everfi Module in your subject heading and include the following information: Name, email address, whether you are an individual student or requesting Everfi for one of your classes.
