Seminars that Fulfill WAY-ED
Engaging Diversity (ED)
In a globally interconnected world, it is ethically and practically crucial to develop an awareness and understanding of differences. By gaining knowledge about diversity and public scholarship, your understanding of the social contexts that frame our communication and collaboration with one another will be extended, and your ability to respond to cultural challenges enhanced.
You’ll need to take one course in Engaging Diversity (ED).
