Diversity Studies Minor

The minor in Diversity Studies helps to facilitate better understanding of the diverse populations that comprise our communities, helping us to comprehend, as philosopher Martha Nussbaum says, "the motives and choices of people different from ourselves, seeing them not as forbiddingly alien or other, but as sharing many problems and possibilities with us." The minor also helps to prepare graduates to be effective members of an increasingly diverse workforce.
