The Citadel's first direct experience with NCBI took place in the summer of 2011. Robert Dungey and Joyce Shabazz, a senior NCBI training team, presented the "Welcoming Diversity" workshop that is the mainstay of the program. Senior staff, Deans, Department Heads, the Commandant's Department, faculty members and frontline staff were all represented at this workshop. The response to the workshop was overwhelmingly positive and the college moved forward to develop its own team.

In February 2012, Robert Dungey and Joyce Shabazz returned to campus and provided a three-day "Train-the-Trainer" workshop. Eighteen members of the Citadel faculty and staff attended this in-depth session, and a group of these individuals make up our training team. A second "Train-the-Trainer" was held in collaboration with MUSC's NCBI team. Once again, Robert Dungey and Joyce Shabazz facilitated a wonderful learning experience. The following members of the team have completed a Train-the-Trainer and remain involved in the program.
