Course Listings

Working with deans, department heads, and faculty, DIAC has created a list of diversity-rich courses to be offered in Spring 2018. View Courses (PDF)

The courses on our list are self-designated by the Professors and not chosen by the DIAC Curriculum and Professional Development Sub-committee.

For this course list, we define diversity as diverse with respect to race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, size, physical or cognitive ability, socio-economic status, religious beliefs, military status, age, or political beliefs.

The purpose of the list is to help students identify courses that will help them to:

  1. Understand and appreciate interdependence of humanity, cultures and the natural environment
  2. Practice mutual respect for qualities and experiences that are different from their own
  3. Understand that diversity includes not only ways of being but also ways of knowing
  4. Recognize that personal, cultural and institutionalized discrimination creates and sustains privileges for some while creating and sustaining disadvantages for others
  5. Build alliances across differences so that we collectively can work together to eradicate all forms of discrimination.

(Note: These five practices are taken, with minor changes, from http://www.qcc.cuny.edu/diversity/definition.html )
