Workshops and Training

We are pleased to announce our Spring 2014 programmatic opportunities! 

Through their intentional collaborations within higher education, the professional staff in the Office of Intercultural Affairs has extensive experience in developing lesson plans, facilitating dialogues, and working with diverse groups for training and development. Committed to providing culturally relevant and contextually important lessons, the staff actively works with faculty and other hosts to develop a solid theoretical and conceptual outline for every training session. 

If you are interested inviting a professional staff member to a class, workshop, seminar, panel, or special session, please contact our office by emailing diversity@stonehill.edu or calling Liza Talusan, Director of Intercultural Affairs, at 508-565-1409 for availability.
