Regional Training for Professionals

Thursday, June 7th
9:00 – 4:30pm
University of Calgary, Vitruvian Space

Building coalitions of professionals working at the intersections of religious, secular, and spiritual identities in higher education is key to the transformation of the campus climate. Maybe you are unsure how religious, secular, and spiritual identities intersects with your work, maybe you are coming to understand the need for more partnerships on your campus in order to live out the work necessary to support inclusion of these identities on our institutions.  No matter who you are, we invite you to come to one of Convergence’s first regional trainings.

Each regional training offers opportunities to gather with colleagues from several institutions, to learn from one another, and to gain clarity as to how religious, secular, and spiritual identities can be integrated into the campus climate through policies and practices at the university.  You’ll return home with new ideas, a framework for working on this are of inclusion on campus, and will have a new cohort of colleagues from which to draw motivation.  You’ll also be equipped with the necessary skills to build coalitions on your campus.

Convergence is excited to offer regional trainings across the U.S. and Canada to help foster inclusive campuses related to religious, secular, & spiritual identities.

This one-day training will focus on:

  • Facilitating opportunities for skill building and learning about promising practices
  • Providing opportunities for networking, learning from others, and sharing successes and challenges

At the end of the session, participants will:

  • Have knowledge to engage with stakeholders on their campuses to build coalitions and affect change
  • Learn about promising practices that can implemented on their campuses
  • Build a network of professionals and be provided tools for engagement within the network
