Program Description

The Certificate in Diversity and Community Engagement educates students about the theory and history of diversity concerns (national and global) as these relate to interdisciplinary study and praxis. Students will take courses that focus on regional and global diversity concerns that are likely to impact their choices of community action and/or career; one course will require them to develop their own engagement project focused on social justice issues. This certificate is designed for students in a wide variety of majors interested in studying diversity issues from an interdisciplinary perspective while also participating in a hands-on community engagement project. Students will explore mental health issues and holistic therapies through an interdisciplinary framework and participate in outreach projects to marginalized communities to address suicide ideation, the use of nonprescription drugs/substances, and other social problems.
