Recommended Pacing and Plan of Study

Plan of Study

The ECHO program is designed to be self-paced and learners are encouraged to set their own course of study based on their capacity and ability needs. For the most impactful and supported experience, we recommend completing the skills-based ECHO courses prior to the identity-based courses if possible. 

  • Skills-based ECHO courses (recommend to take these courses in any sequence before the identity-based courses if possible):

    • My Role in Equity and Diversity Work

    • Navigating Challenging Conversations 

    • Addressing Implicit Bias and Microaggressions

    • Removing Barriers and Creating Access

  • Identity-based ECHO Courses (recommend to take in any sequence after the skills-based courses, if possible):

    • Ableism & Disability Justice

    • Challenging Classism

    • Gender, Gender Identity, and Sexuality

    • Race, Racism, and White Supremacy

    • Religious and Spiritual Identities

    • Understanding and Addressing Gender-Based Oppression

Pacing of the Program

The ECHO program is designed to be self-paced. Some learners take 1-2 courses each semester (fall, spring, and summer), and some take more based on their capacity. 

Please note, if you completed the ECHO program prior to 2018, we recommend that you refresh the program as the content and format has evolved significantly.
