National Coalition Building Institute

What is NCBI?
The National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) is a nonprofit leadership training organization based in Washington, D.C., dedicated to ending prejudice of every kind, fostering principled leadership, and creating coalitions among diverse groups. For more information, see the institute's website, NCBI.

What will I learn from the "Train-the-Trainer" seminar?
The NCBI "Train-the-Trainer" seminar teaches participants the range of skills necessary for providing influential leadership to end discrimination, reduce inter-group conflict, and build multi-group coalitions. Participants learn how to lead the NCBI prejudice reduction workshop in partnership with the local NCBI team. More details about the workshops are at NCBI Training Programs.

What happens after the "Train-the-Trainer" seminar?
After completing a TTT, participants are invited to become members and trainers of the Ithaca College NCBI chapter. The chapter will consist of students, faculty, and staff from various disciplines to provide a powerful leadership resource for the campus.

The team will provide proactive workshops to improve the overall campus climate for diversity by building a more inclusive environment and to teach skills in how to effectively shift prejudicial attitudes and be powerful allies for one another. The team is also trained to intervene when tough inter-group conflict arises on the campus or between the campus and the community. Members will meet regularly to practice the NCBI model.

All new NCBI trainers are encouraged to co-lead workshops and training for faculty, staff, and student groups, in collaboration with more senior NCBI trainers as they more fully develop their leadership skills and understanding of the NCBI models and processes.
