National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI)


The National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) Campus Affiliate at Edinboro University is a community building and leadership development team made up of faculty, staff, and students.  Edinboro's team has worked together to help eliminate prejudice and inter-group conflict while cultivating relationships through the teaching of bridge-building skills.

The National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) is an international, non-profit, leadership training organization based in Washington, DC, USA.  Since 1984, NCBI has worked to eliminate racism and all other forms of prejudice and discrimination throughout the world.  To visit the NCBI homepage, click here

Our Mission is to:

    • Build relationships that reveal the humanity of all persons
    • Model, teach, and hone the skills of healing the wounds of prejudice
    • Work with organizations to increase knowledge and understanding around differences of all kinds
    • Mobilize and empower diverse leaders to carry the message of acceptance and inclusion to others
    • Create a community where all people and all groups are treated with dignity and respect

Edinboro University NCBI team members have been trained to facilitate a one-day "Welcoming Diversity/Prejudice Reduction Workshop" that shows how participants have been taught to think and act as members of their racial, gender, and other identity groups and provides skills for bridging differences.  Click on the registration form below to register for a diversity training workshop.
