The Certificate in Diversity and Inclusion is offered by the Department of Psychological Studies in Education. Students who earn this certificate will be able to negotiate issues of power in a variety of settings, and will be positioned to act as advocates and organizers for people who have been systemically marginalized based on a variety of socially constructed characteristics including race, socioeconomic status, disability, immigration status and ethnicity. A certificate in Diversity and Inclusion enables and empowers our students to be leaders in both public and private sectors.
