The Diversity Course Database assists students in identifying courses that address elements of diversity and inclusion (based on race, class, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ability, and global dimensions) for deeper study and personal growth.
In addition to majors housed in academic departments, interdisciplinary majors and minors provide deep opportunities to explore multiple aspects of identities and the experiences of those affected by bias, discrimination and oppression.
