The goal of the Training Committee is to support a departmental culture of continued learning and growth.

We do this by developing and sharing educational opportunities related to equity, diversity, inclusion, and social justice. 

  • Sponsor training series (e.g., Dr. Patreese Ingram)
  • Organize educational events (e.g., Picture a Scientist Screening and Women in Science Panel Discussion)
  • Host relevant departmental seminar speakers
  • Support the participation of community members in external training opportunities (e.g., RainbowAg Network)
