Diversity Literacy (CERT)
The Certificate in Diversity Literacy will provide a unique opportunity for students who have already earned bachelor's degrees to enhance their knowledge and skills of the theory and practice of inclusion and equity, including what diversity means, what its personal and social effects are, and how it shapes lives, workplaces, and pedagogy. This knowledge base and skill set will allow, for example, educators to become more inclusive in their pedagogy, employees to work more effectively in multicultural teams, and managers to become better supervisors by better understanding their cultural assumptions and those of their employees.
Anyone who has earned a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university may apply.
