UConn Faculty and Staff: Free Courses on Confronting Bias

Faculty and staff may now enroll in self-paced versions of two online courses originally offered to UConn students in the Spring 2022 semester. Confronting Anti-Asian Racism and Why the Jews? Confronting Antisemitism explore stereotypes, bias, hatred, and racism toward these groups; examine history, including recent events; and introduce ways to confront the negative attitudes and actions in today’s world.

Developed by University faculty, the courses are free to all faculty and staff. They are self-paced so that participants can complete them as time allows and, upon successful completion, a printable certificate is available within each of the courses.

More information is available in the links below:

These courses are open continuously and you can self-enroll from the links above using your NetID.
