Education and Equity Graduate Certificate
The purpose of this graduate certificate is to equip pre-service and in-service educators with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to more effectively educate and advocate for children and families from under-served populations. The work of educators must include plans to create an equitable educational system and larger society. This certificate program follows a three-course sequence. The first course focuses on equipping students with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to make connections between school improvement and equity. The second course addresses the historical roots of inequality in the education of students of color and the impact on the individual, community, and society. The final course in the sequence focuses on the completion of an Equity Work Sample and the completion of a clinical experience focused on educational improvement and equity.
