The College of Architecture at Texas A&M University has announced the introduction of a new certificate program in diversity. The certificate program requires students to take a minimum of nine hours of diversity-related courses and to complete four credit hours of independent projects or research. Students will also be required to participate in 10 hours of co-curricular activities such as attending diversity-related lectures and to complete 20 hours of service learning.
Marisa Suhm, assistant director for diversity education at College of Architecture stated that “the certificate will expand undergraduate students’ vision of the world and the role they can play in it. We strive to achieve a vision of the world where we are willing to learn from people different than ourselves, where everyone is welcome at the table, everyone is considered and respected, and every culture has something to teach us.”
