Diversity and Inclusion Certificate
College: College of Social Sciences & Professional Studies
Requirements for the Diversity and Inclusion Certificate
Tomorrow’s leaders require a competitive edge. A skill of uprooting hidden biases and natural blind spots is required to effectively work and contribute to the increasingly diverse society. These skills are needed so the barriers are lessened and an equal opportunity is secured. Interestingly, this is needed in each and every walk of life following graduation. Our practicum for this certificate has a longstanding tradition in the sociology department. We have the diversity circles that come in one credit tackling different topics. Thus, this certificate secures the most rewarding career. Diversity specialists could be program managers, facilitators, counselors and learning specialists.
