Diversity Certification Path

The Diversity Certification is purposed to foster an understanding of one’s multiple identities and how those intersecting identities impact the world around them. This certification is also purposed to help students define themselves as a global citizen going beyond the realities of the United States. The Diversity Certification is sponsored through programs developed within the Office of International Programs, Center for Multicultural Affairs and Inclusive Excellence, Gender & Sexuality Center, and OASIS.


Ten points are required to earn the Diversity Certification. Approved programs will be posted on the Leadership By Design WarriorLink site, which will include:
