Preparing Students to be

Culturally Competent and Socially Responsible Academic Diversity Programs

at Northern Illinois University

At Northern Illinois University, we strive to provide our student body with transformational learning experiences that will help prepare them for career success following graduation. How do we do this? We start by placing value on the importance of creating a community that embraces diverse people, ideas, services and scholarly goals. The academic diversity programs available to students at NIU are an integral component of growing a vibrant and diverse student population that reflects our academic mission. These interdisciplinary programs promote excellence and engagement in teaching and learning, research and scholarship, creativity and artistry, and outreach and service. We hope you take an opportunity to explore our many minor and certificate programs that promote cultural awareness, understanding and inclusion while building a foundation of success for not only your collegiate and prospective career, but also in life. Douglas D. Baker President, Northern Illinois University

The beauty of human experiences is that they are diverse. Likewise our educational experiences should be intertwined with diverse experiences and opportunities to develop intellectually because we are exposed to different people, and different ways of knowing and doing. We are challenged by perspectives that are articulated by people whose viewpoints are informed by different cultural contexts. Academic Diversity is a necessary component to academic excellence. By exposing ourselves to differences, we receive a richer understanding of our world and of ourselves. Engaging diversity includes knowing how to relate to those qualities and conditions that are different from our own and outside the groups to which we belong. These include, but are not limited to age, cognitive abilities, ethnicity, gender, geographical location, learning styles, life experiences, national origin, political beliefs, physical ability, race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and so on. This is academic diversity at its best, achieved through diversity programs, multicultural curriculums and supportive co-curricular programs that help students to challenge ethnocentrism and stereotypes reduce discrimination and overcome biases. And in the process in learning you are affected in positive ways that motivate you to have an impact on others in positive ways. Cultural competency can be contagious. There are numerous academic diversity programs at Northern Illinois University presented in this brochure. We hope you will take the opportunity to examine these programs and discover the one which will best complement your major area of study and career endeavors.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change the world.� —Nelson Mandela 2

“We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value, no matter what their color.” —Maya Angelou

Think Outside the Major At Northern Illinois University, students who enroll in a minor or a certificate program are introduced to courses that will enhance their academic experience. Whether they are seeking additional training to supplement their major, looking to bolster their resume, or simply learning for pleasure, students are able to explore a curriculum outside of their major without the rigors of a full course load.

What is a Minor? Minors, much like college majors, focus on a particular area of study, but require fewer classes with a smaller concentration.

What is a Certificate Program? Certificate programs are designed to refresh or refine an existing skill or subject, typically requiring fewer credits and less time to complete than an associate’s or a bachelor’s degree. NIU offers a diverse selection of minor and certificate programs designed to heighten the student experience by focusing on cultural diversity and promoting intercultural understanding: • Asian American Studies (certificate) • Black Studies (minor) • Chinese Studies (minor) • Gerontology Studies (minor and certificate) • Global Studies (minor) • Japanese Studies (minor) • Latino and Latin American Studies (minor) • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Studies (certificate) • Southeast Asia Studies (minor) • Women’s Studies (minor)

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” —Mahatma Ghandi 3

Why is diversity important in higher education? • Diversity prepares students for living and working with people from a wide range of backgrounds. By experiencing diversity in college, you are laying the groundwork for working and interacting comfortably with a variety of individuals from all nationalities. • A greater understanding of diversity deepens the educational experience of every student and enriches the work life of every faculty and staff member. • Diversity provides a diverse range of faculty who, in turn, may serve as role models for a diverse student population. • Diversity expands the range of research and teaching interests represented in departments and programs. • Students are encouraged to examine their beliefs, attitudes, and assumptions about differences of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, culture, ethnic and racial identity, disabilities, learning styles, and other forms of diversity. • Diversity enhances social development. Interacting with people from a variety of groups widens your social circle by expanding the pool of people with whom you associate and develop relationships. • Diversity prepares students for future career success. Successful performance in today’s diverse workforce requires sensitivity to human differences and the ability to relate to people from different cultural backgrounds. Employers value diversity. • Diversity enhances self-awareness. Learning from people whose backgrounds and experiences differ from your own sharpens your self- knowledge and self-interest by allowing you to compare and contrast your life experiences with others whose experiences differ sharply from your own. • Diversity allows students to develop an awareness and respect for social justice. Courses related to this aspect of human diversity seek to increase students’ awareness and understanding of justice and injustice. • Diversity helps develop leaders who are prepared to affect social change in a positive way in the workplace and society.
