Why do we require a diversity and inclusion course?
At Clark University, learning and teaching take place within a diverse and inclusive community. We teach and learn from each other, formally and informally, both inside and beyond the classroom. We challenge one another’s beliefs and assumptions. We extend one another’s range of experience. We teach one another to see the world from different and sometimes challenging perspectives. We share one another’s concerns, and we respect one another’s dignity, regardless of race, gender, class, sexuality, religion, age, ability, citizenship, nationality or ethnicity.
Most of our Diversity & Inclusion courses have a substantial focus on issues of race, gender, or ethnicity, but others may address issues of religion, age, sexuality, ability, nationality or class. All Diversity & Inclusion courses engage students in the critical analysis of such topics as power, intersectionality, inequality, marginality, and identity.
How to satisfy this requirement
Every undergraduate student at Clark University starting with the Class of 2021 is required to complete a course with a Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) attribute. Courses fulfilling other requirements in the Program of Liberal Studies or in any major, concentration, or minor requirements may simultaneously fulfill the D&I requirement.
