Built on a portfolio of curated learning opportunities, the Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Certificate Program is designed for you to become immersed in the University’s commitment to diversity and participate in programs that support a culture of belonging while exposing you to ideas, people, and topics. Become more knowledgeable and build confidence in diversity and inclusion in this self-paced program.

While the content is designed primarily for workplace scenarios most familiar to staff, faculty members are also welcome to participate in any of the offerings and be awarded a certificate.

This certificate program helps employees cultivate inclusive communication, understand cultural differences, and drive culture change through powerful diversity and inclusion initiatives.

Self-paced hybrid program • Most participants complete this program in around 12-16 months


Throughout the year, attend interactive virtual offerings and immersive events (electives) to build skills. 

There is a unique curriculum for all staff and faculty, and a separate one for leaders (individuals with direct reports). The only difference between the two programs is that leaders will complete one additional session to empower and equip them to develop inclusive environments where everyone feels valued and respected.
