Diversity in General Education
Diversity Mission StatementGeneral Education at Weber State University supports the development of cultural competencies through designated Diversity (DV) courses which prepare students to recognize a plurality of perspectives, including their own, to function successfully in a global society.
Courses that fulfill the diversity requirement also fulfill a General Education breadth requirement.
Diversity Learning OutcomesA student who successfully completes a General Education Diversity Course will:
- describe his/her own perspective as one among many,
- identify values and biases that inform the perspectives of oneself and others,
- recognize and articulate the rights, perspectives, and experiences of others.
The revised mission and outcomes were approved by the General Education Improvement and Assessment Committee on 1/21/14. They were subsequently approved by the Curriculum Committee on 2/26/14.
