The College of Education and Allied Professions supports policies and practices that focus on the promotion and valuing of diversity. The College is committed to designing, implementing and evaluating curricula and experiences and for ensuring that candidates have experiences working with diverse faculty, diverse candidates, and diverse students in P-12 schools and other social service settings. This will ensure that our candidates have the knowledge, skills and dispositions necessary to help all students and clients.
We define diversity broadly to include exceptionalities, race, ethnicity, culture, religious background, gender, linguistic differences, socioeconomic level, and any of the other ways our society defines human and group differences, including age, geography, sexual orientation and national origin.
The purpose of the CEAP Diversity Portfolio/eBriefcase is to provide co-curricular educational experiences to students admitted to the undergraduate teacher education program that will promote their knowledge, skills, and dispositions related to diversity and cultural competency. Through these curricular and co-curricular educational experiences and the open exchange of ideas that allow, students can become more reflective thinkers and commit to moving beyond the status quo to address and take action on complex contemporary social issues. The portfolio consists of two Tiers and an optional Diversity Certificate.
Tier I: Exploring the Iceberg of Diversity
Tier II: Melting the iceberg of Diversity
Students will model a personal and professional commitment that exemplifies dispositions that promote the educational growth and overall wellbeing of themselves, their students and/or others in a diverse world.
In addition to the requirements above, students can choose to earn a Diversity Certificate
through participation in one or more sustained diversity experiences.
For a list of current events that students can participate in, please visit our Diversity Dialogue Facebook page.
Please view our document with details about the requirements for the different sections of the Diversity Portfolio. The portfolio is administered in Tk20.
The CEAP Diversity Committee is comprised of faculty, staff, and students who represent the College of Education and Allied Profssions, other colleges in Academic Affairs, staff in Student Affairs, and administrators from across the campus.
