AAAS 5100 - Foundational Theories in Diversity Leadership

The course focuses on developing an understanding of diversity and difference, power and privilege, and oppression. Emphasis will be given on understanding of one’s self within these systems as an essential foundation for culturally competent practices in any environment. Students will learn: (i) systems that maintain differential access to power and privilege at the expense of marginalized others, (ii) skills for understanding and interrogating their own multiple social identities (i.e., social locations), (iii) knowledge and skills for appropriate training practices in bias, (iv) strategies for interrupting systems of oppression and other ways to work for the core value of social justice. Students may enroll in their junior or senior year or as part of a graduate program. There are no prerequisites, however, students are encouraged to contact their advisor or the instructor of record before enrolling to make sure this is a good fit.

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: May be repeated for credit. Open to upperclass and graduate students.
