Services & Campus-Wide Trainings
IMQ is here to provide advising and resources to all students, and to foster multicultural awareness among all members of the university community through our services and activities. Feel free to stop in and see what we can offer you.
Zone Training and Awareness Accordion Closed
IMQ educates the Northern Arizona University community on issues relevant to the students it serves through our Zone Training Series. The Zone Training Series includes:
- Inclusion Zone 101 & 102: a foundational training intended for NAU students, faculty, and staff that functions to facilitate understanding of frequently used concepts such as diversity, equity, and social justice through the lens of inclusion. Throughout the training, participants will be asked to reflect on their own identities and challenge their daily practices to begin a journey of critical consciousness.
- DREAM Zone 101: an interactive workshop that serves to introduce NAU students, faculty, and staff to issues and challenges facing the undocumented community through contexts of terminology, history, policies and procedures. The workshop focuses on how we can express solidarity and support undocumented members of our NAU Community.
- Safe Zone 101 & 102: an interactive training designed to provide a foundational approach to LGBTQIA+ allyship. Participants will also learn to become well-informed and active allies to the LGBTQIA+ community.
- TRANSparency Zone 101 & 102: an introductory training program aimed to enhance awareness of the transgender community, engage with topics impacting the community, and create steps toward a more inclusive climate.
- Unconscious Bias: a targeted, interactive, facilitator-led training program designed to help participants identify and begin to override their biases and rewire their brains to be more inclusive and productive.
Please visit your LOUIE account to register for these training sessions.
Note for Fall 2020: We will begin hosting the trainings again in early August 2020. We offer the trainings at least 2-3 times each month during the academic year. Currently, we are working diligently to transition the trainings online given the current pandemic. You will be able to register through your LOUIE account beginning July 15th.
