Equity & Diversity Certificate Program

You are here

The Equity and Diversity Certificate is a program developed by the University of Minnesota System’s Office of Equity and Diversity.  This ally model series of workshops help participants develop tools necessary for advancing equity and diversity in all aspects of their personal and professional lives. It’s free of charge and open to all faculty and staff on all campuses of the University of Minnesota.

UMD has spent the last three years building internal capacity to offer this certificate. Thanks to those efforts (supported by all VC units and the Chancellor's Office) we are able to offer all 10 workshops in the Basic Certificate on the UMD Campus.
