With racial tensions high across the US, a local university is continuing its efforts to promote equality. 

Morehead State University’s Eagle Diversity and Inclusion Team began working in the fall of 2018 to address bias response, campus climate, employee recruitment and retention, and other special topics as the need arises.

MSU Diversity Officer, Dr. Caroline Atkins says this fall the university will be offering cultural competence and implicit bias training. 

Atkins says MSU plans to create opportunities for students to be prepared for the global environment, since many will be entering a workforce that may look nothing like the region in which they grew up.
