Equity & Diversity Certificate Program

The Equity and Diversity Certificate is a program developed by the University of Minnesota System’s Office of Equity and Diversity.  This ally model series of workshops help participants develop tools necessary for advancing equity and diversity in all aspects of their personal and professional lives. It’s free of charge and open to all faculty and staff on all University of Minnesota campuses.

UMD has been building internal capacity to offer this certificate. Thanks to those efforts (supported by all VC units and the Chancellor's Office), we can offer all ten workshops in the Basic Certificate on the UMD Campus.
