This model was developed by the National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI), an organization devoted to eliminating all forms of prejudice throughout the world. The training is highly interactive and is definitely not your typical "diversity training." Participants will be prompted (to the extent each is comfortable) to engage in self-reflection and sharing, to practice talking about the messages we internalize about our own and others' groups, to correct misinformation through "caucus" sessions, to learn through the sharing of personal stories and experiences, and to begin practicing how to respond to hurtful jokes, comments, and slurs. Note: Individuals who complete or have completed NCBI workshops may obtain credit toward the Building University of Iowa Leadership for Diversity (BUILD) certificate.


Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact in advance at
