Western Oregon University (WOU)’s Diversity Certificate Program promotes acceptance, equality, and respect for individual differences by encouraging students to participate in campus activities, clubs, and organizations that facilitate multicultural awareness, advocate equal rights and social justice, and/or provide hands-on experience working in diverse settings. The overall goal of the program is to increase students’ awareness and understanding of diversity, culture, and various sociological, psychosocial, and scientific perspectives. The program encourages individuals to move beyond simple tolerance and into celebrating the rich dimensions of multiculturalism and diversity—race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, and ability, which are contained within each individual’s attitudes, beliefs, values, world views, and commitments to social organizations.
