Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion


This Area of Distinction in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is designed for educators seeking to advance their knowledge and skills to support open and inclusive learning environments.  Factors such as age, appearance, race, ethnicity, religion, education, sexual orientation, gender identity, and political beliefs make us all different. For this reason, educators must learn to celebrate and embrace these differences. Candidates will explore different cultures, its impact on learning environments and student behavior, while practicing equity and social justice.
