EDIC 9017 Diversity and Inclusion Certificate

The purpose of this course is to help you think about race and ethnicity as an evolving part of the human experience that, with understanding, self-reflection, and a willingness to engage in the larger world around us, can help you thrive. We will study the concept of Critical Race Theory. Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a theoretical framework in the social sciences that examines society and culture as they relate to categorizations of race, law, and power. CRT recognizes that racism is engrained in the fabric and system of the American society. The five tenets of Critical Race Theory are Counter-Storytelling, the Permanence of Racism, Whiteness as Property, Interest Convergence, and the Critique of Liberalism. Participants will have opportunities to explore each of the five tenets in order to develop a deeper understanding of each tenet. No matter how good our intentions are to be free of prejudice, we all have implicit biases that can have a serious impact on our work. Participants will explore the concept of implicit bias and the nuanced behaviors that are a product of our unconscious beliefs. Through the implementation of Compassionate Dialogue and the RIR Protocol students will reflect interpersonally, intrapersonally, and systemically on issues that impede an ability for individuals to thrive. 5 credits.
