Campus contacts

Provides a sweeping sociological overview of diversity in the United States. Focuses on diversity characteristics such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, and ability. Covers the array of experiences, cultural expressions and contributions that make up diversity in the US. Focuses on the development of skills needed to think critically about the causes and consequences of inequity in the US as well as creatively about initiatives that can address that inequity. Explores the central questions, schools of thought, and theoretical debates about diversity as well as the social contexts, historical events, institutional structures, and unequal relations of power that shape society. Introduces ways that institutional reform and collective behavior can lead to social change in relation to diversity and prepare the working professional with tools to practice cultural responsiveness in a diverse society.
