LENS Diversity Certificate Program
Website and/or Calendar Links
he LENS Diversity Certificate Program is a year-long cohort program that helps Illinois students build important skills and practice for engaging diversity on campus and beyond. LENS Diversity Certificate participants take courses, attend workshops and regular cohort meetings, and design their own action project.
The LENS Diversity Certificate is open to any university student with a full academic year (fall to spring) remaining. Applications to the LENS Diversity Certificate are accepted in late spring through early fall.
The LENS Certificate builds both theoretical understanding and practical skills through three “lenses” of diversity:
- The micro-lens focuses on the individual's personal culture and the intersection of identities
- The meso-lens focuses on the interpersonal relationships and cross-cultural communication
- The macro-lens focuses on the institutional, societal, and cultural influences in social justice
- Diversity & Social Justice Education
