Making Excellence Inclusive Diversity Certificate Program


About the Program

The eight-month "Making Excellence Inclusive (MEI) Diversity Certificate Program" will guide participants through a series of learning activities designed to emphasize the commitment to diversity and inclusion as a core value in an increasingly divers campus environment.

The program is developed around the believe that individuals learn most effectively when they discover, understand, and apply their new knowledge the the real world situations they face in the university environment.

  • Workshops - led by leading authorities representing a broad cross-section of diversity topics

  • Discussion Sessions - participants share their thought on the topic areas

  • Capstone Projects - create a practical application of the concepts; develop an innovative project that will expand knowledge on a selected diversity topic

  • Project Presentation - demonstration of participants' understanding of the "Making Excellence Inclusive Diversity Certificate Program" 


Eligible participants must have completed their probationary period and have an endorsement for participation from their department.
