National Coalition Building Institute

The National Coalition Building Institute (NCBI) was founded in 1984 in Washington, D.C. as a non-profit leadership training organization. NCBI works to eliminate prejudice and conflict in communities throughout the world. It is the goal of NCBI and Frostburg State University to build relationships that allow people to become allies, to increase the skill of listening to people, hearing their stories and understanding their issues to allow us to develop coalitions and reframe issues to work on common ground.

Student Testimony

I had a great experience at the NCBI training. I learned that being at the NCBI training was a challenge because I’m an introverted individual. Speaking in front of a large group of people is not what I do often. I don't do well speaking in large groups because I get very nervous and it becomes hard for me to project my voice. I had the opportunity to speak out and actually be able to reach out and relate to people and I am very happy about that. This training helped me and pushed me to become a better person. The trainers helped me break down this barrier that I've created for myself. I will use my experience from this training to teach other students about a non- biased, non-stereotypical way of living.
