Tisch IDBEA Foundations

Focused on foundational Inclusion, Diversity, Belonging, Equity & Accessibility (IDBEA) concepts and frameworks, this online training is available to faculty, staff, and administrators.

The training is composed of 4 modules that will be launched throughout the academic year. Each module contains two to three 15-min courses. Embedded in each course are interactive opportunities to engage with material, tangible ways for each concept to be incorporated into community practice, and a downloadable resource for future reference.

Snack and Unpack

A series aligned to the IDBEA Foundations Training. Each 1-hour session will offer an opportunity for in-depth conversations with colleagues on the various IDBEA topics presented in the online training. Sessions will be offered in-person, and based on the time of day, breakfast, lunch, or a snack will be provided to participants.

Stay tuned for more information about Restorative Approaches!

Please note templates on how to continue Snack and Unpack conversations with your department or group are available by request. Please email Tisch.IDBEA@nyu.edu for more information. 

Customizable Workshops

Community members can request a specific topic area to be explored through a restorative lens and will work in collaboration with the Office of Diversity to shape an experience for the participants of a group or department. Sessions may be requested that are associated with IDBEA online module topics (i.e. identity, intersectionality, accessibility, etc.) or aligned to a focus area of the group or department (i.e. feedback, conflict management, etc.).

Workshop Request Guidelines

  • Requests must be made at least 4 weeks in advance.
  • Sessions are generally scheduled during business hours, which are Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. ET. Sessions may range in time based on the needs, however, it is recommended that sessions are at least 1-hour in length.
  • The requester must provide space, technology, and logistics for each session requested. In the virtual space, this includes: creating the Zoom link, managing registration, addressing accessibility needs (such as live captioning), managing the breakout rooms, and enabling the facilitator to share screens with slides.
  • We recommend these sessions be facilitated in-person as they are designed for active participant engagement, however, virtual sessions are possible, if necessary.
  • Please note that there might be a slight delay in our response. We appreciate your understanding.
