Since October, the University of Cincinnati has been hosting a series of diversity workshops on both the UC Clermont and the Clifton campuses. Recently, Associate Professor of Human and Social Services Nzingha Dalila of UC Clermont was invited to speak at the workshop “Journey to Advocacy,” held on the main campus on November 18th.

On October 13th, UC Clermont students had the opportunity to attend an event focused on the importance of UC Clermont's efficiency as an inclusive and diverse campus. The event was funded by The President's Diversity Incentive Grant, thanks to Girija Nair-Hart (Associate Professor of Mathematics) and Nzingha Dalila (Assistant Professor of Human and Social Services), who both initiated the event and secured the grant that made it possible. Additional event funding was provided by Dean Bauer's office, and a luncheon was served thanks to the donations of various UC Clermont academic departments. The "A Dialogue on Diversity and Equity" workshop took place inside UC Clermont's Student Activity Center, and was followed by interactive training with the University of Cincinnati Racial Awareness Program, UC RAPP.

When most people think of jam sessions, they imagine all sorts of musicians coming together to create original and unique music. At UC Clermont, the term “jam session” has a slightly different meaning. Elicia Flom, UC Clermont’s Director of Instructional Design and eLearning, has organized jam sessions that, instead of bringing together musicians, brings together the faculty and staff of UC Clermont to find solutions to everyday technology-based problems.
