Diversity in General Education

Diversity Mission Statement

General 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.

Diversity Courses

Courses that fulfill the diversity requirement also fulfill a General Education breadth requirement.

Diversity Learning Outcomes

A student who successfully completes a General Education Diversity Course will:
  1. describe his/her own perspective as one among many,
  2. identify values and biases that inform the perspectives of oneself and others,
  3. 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.
