Audience: All Employees
The highest result of education is tolerance. --Hellen Keller

In keeping with St. John’s strong core values as a Vincentian institution, this workshop will help you increase your understanding of the value of diversity in the workplace and in the multicultural society in which we all live.


  • How the academic case for diversity impacts higher education in general and St. John's University specifically.
  • To practice skills that will lead to greater responsiveness to students and co-workers.
  • A greater appreciation for why understanding, responsiveness and openness to diversity are important to the St. John's mission and goals.
  • How your personal attributes may enhance your contribution to the University's diversity efforts.

Note: Please coordinate participation among the supervisors in your department so that supervisors and direct reports do not attend the same session. This is recommended so that all may speak freely during the session.
