Program Overview

Available to all students regardless of their major, the minor in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) was designed for students who are passionate about social justice. The goal of the minor is to provide students with the economics and social justice knowledge to work effectively in any organization in pursuit of DEI goals.

Students who pursue the minor take an introductory course that establishes a breadth of topics in economics and business that are impacted by individual personal characteristics such as race, class, and gender. Students then take electives drawn from the College of Arts and Sciences that provide context and skills that inform the experience of diverse people. Finally, students bring this knowledge to a final capstone course that focuses attention on diversity in the workplace.

The capstone course, "Diversity in the Workplace," will provide students with the opportunity to integrate the content and context they have learned into their understanding of modern business and economic decision-making.
