OREGON STATE ADVANCE Train-the-Trainer Program 

The first ADVANCE Train-the-Trainer Session took place in June 2019. Please check this site for information regarding future sessions.

The OREGON STATE ADVANCE Train-the-Trainer program is open to both ADVANCE and DPD Seminar graduates and Non-OSU participants.

The OREGON STATE ADVANCE Seminar has been the centerpiece of our NSF Institutional Transformation (IT) grant project. It is an interactive learning experience centered on analyzing the operations of difference, power, and privilege in higher education, with a particular focus on the STEM disciplines. The seminar provides opportunities to explore structural inequities within the university and to imagine a transformed future in which institutional structures and personal behaviors are both professionally and personally life-affirming for people across their differences. Train-the-Trainer participants will learn how to deliver an ADVANCE Seminar that is adapted for their institutions, or their units / departments.
