2. Designation Proposal Questions
Diversity goes beyond the mere acknowledgment of difference to address the systematic silencing of
marginalized people as we work toward creating a more just world. Diversity encompasses multiple
dimensions, including but not limited to race, ability, nationality, ethnicity, religion, geographic
origin, class, sexual orientation and identities, gender, gender identities and expressions, and age,
allowing us to learn about the world through these perspectives.
Courses with a diversity designation are designed with the understanding that diverse perspectives
have been historically excluded from the core curriculum. These courses promote students’ critical
engagement with issues arising from the historical exclusion of oppressed voices. As such, courses
with a diversity designation enhance student awareness of current and past injustices, as well as the
potential role of diversity in enriching society.

[NOTE: This SLO requires you to demonstrate that students have “shifted” with or in their thinking as a
result of taking this class. It is not enough to demonstrate that they “understand the principles presented
or covered herein”, the goal of this SLO is to assess if students now see, experience, feel, act, think
differently as a result of SLO #1 and 2.]
