Master of Science - Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Leadership

Gain the skills needed to lead and assess institutional efforts of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The 31-credit MS in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Leadership provides learners with the tools necessary to serve in leadership roles that marshal agency, organizational, and/or institutional efforts to create and maintain environments that go further than supporting the needs of individuals of diverse identities, but center belongingness and the critical examination of policies and practices that disproportionately impact individuals and groups based on their group membership. Diversity, equity, and inclusion practitioners are vital in supporting organizations as they work to optimize and/or re-imagine organizational culture to meet diversity, equity, and inclusion goals. 

Students will examine critical theories and frameworks that will guide their practice and practical application. The MS in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Leadership will explore race, ethnicity, gender, and culture in the U.S. context, leadership, executive writing, statistics and evaluation, evidence-based practices, and the role of laws and policies. Intercultural and inclusive learning competencies will be addressed as a thread through the curriculum.
