The Multicultural Resource Center organizes the MRC Lecture Series and collaborates with other organizations or groups to bring awareness of race and racial issues to the SCSU campus and community.
This workshop provided intensive training for SCSU faculty on how to incorporate anti-racism pedagogy into courses across disciplines, across our campus. This two part training was led by nationally recognized trainers with follow-up meetings in 2010 - 2011 academic year. Participants developed curriculum modifications for existing or new courses with implementation in future semesters.

NSSWE is designed to increase the knowledge, sensitivity and awareness of Minnesota educators, administrators and employees on the histories, cultures and languages of the federally recognized tribes and bands in Minnesota. This high-quality professional development program will promote a greater understanding of American Indian issues and provide opportunities to critically evaluate educational materials and resources. The goal of NSSWE is to facilitate learning among teachers, administrators, and student service providers in order to increase the effectiveness of working with American Indian students.
