The Intercultural Learning Certificate Program is based in the Dr. Jo Watts Williams School of Education that all teacher education students beginning with the class of 2022 will complete. This certificate program offers an experiential deep dive into issues of social justice, inclusion, equity, and diversity through an intentional structure of an orientation session, academic coursework, co-curricular engagement, experiential learning project, capstone and a digital portfolio capturing your collective experiences. Students are a part of a cohort and have the opportunity to take classes, attend programs/events, engage in reflective writing, meet 1:1 with faculty/staff members, complete an Academic Service Learning course or ELR workbook and attend a retreat. The program is led by the Dr. Jo Watts Williams School of Education’s Executive Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Dr. Cherrel Miller Dyce.

Message from the Dean

As we prepare future educators, we believe in the importance of developing knowledge, skills and attitudes focused on the areas of diversity, equity and inclusion. In training the next generation of educators, we want to foster intercultural competence through intentional curricular and co-curricular involvements, which we believe will make for stronger educators.
