The Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance launched the Diversity and Inclusion Certificate Program in an effort to make Florida Gulf Coast University a more Diverse and Inclusive place.
This Certificate is a great way to show your commitment to Diversity and Inclusion, an important component of the new performance evaluation for University Staff. It can also be a valuable addition to Faculty portfolios, resumes and College Portfolios for Students.
In order to receive the certificate, you will have to attend 6 presentations, trainings or events (2 core sessions + 4 other sessions from the calendar) throughout the academic year. Events with multiple offers during the year, such as "Meet Someone New!"or "Dialogue on Race", may count only once towards the certificate. The calendar of events below will be updated throughout the year as new sessions and events become available.
Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion is a life-long learning endeavor. There are many areas and approaches that cannot be covered during only one year. Thus, you are expected to keep your certificate current by attending at least 3 events every year. This will give participants the opportunity to develop a more rounded and complete understanding of the richness of our diverse society.
In order to record your attendance, we do need you to bring your Eagle ID to the events. If you didn't register, but you would like to attend an event, you can always register at the event as long as you bring your Eagle ID.
Core Sessions (You need to attend at least 2 of these)
