Equity & Diversity Programs collaborates with various Montclair State University organizations and departments on programs such as Diversity Week, Building Bridges Interfaith Dialogue Series, LGBT Safe Space training, Constitution Day, and the World’s Fair to encourage awareness and diversity. In addition, Equity & Diversity Programs promotes heritage and pride months such as African American History, Latino/a Pride, National Coming Out Day, Women’s History, Holocaust Remembrance Day, and Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage.
In the fall, we offer the annual What’s the D.E.A.L. (Diversity, Equity and Leadership) at Montclair State University? Conference for students. In the spring, we coordinate the annual All-Together Different Student Weekend Retreat, along with the Student Government Association and Student Leadership Programs, which aims to increase communication between diverse student populations on-campus. This weekend encourages student networking through team building activities, skits, and facilitated "tough conversations." We also provide a similar one-day diversity training for university faculty and staff in the winter.
