Certificate in Diversity and Inclusion

Students who earn a Diversity and Inclusion 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. Requirements of the certificate include four three-credit courses, and a comprehensive reflective paper.
