Michigan university uses $35K federal grant for diversity, inclusion course

Led by professor Leland Harper, the initiative was fueled by a $34,905 planning grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to “design a new, coherent D&I certificate program … that is qualitatively distinct from the D&I certificates offered at other institutions,” records show.

Students at SHU can qualify for the certificate after completing 12 credit hours of training on issues including “racism, sexism, ageism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and xenophobia,” according to the university course catalog.

The program will include readings and conversations drawing on philosophy, English, history, gender studies and business.
