Explore the social diversity certificate at UW-Eau Claire

The social diversity certificate at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire is an excellent choice for those interested in better understanding the inequalities experienced within our society today. Coursework will explore topics like race, class, gender and sexualities and will take a close look at the institutions that cause these inequalities. In addition, students will learn how systems of privilege and oppression have been created and sustained. 

Students graduate from the program with increased awareness of the real — but often invisible — causes of inequality and the knowledge needed to help make positive change. This insight is fundamental for all professionals, but especially for those who are interested in better serving the public in fields like healthcare, education, social services and criminal justice.
