Certificate Program in Diversity in Community

Not accepting new students.

Program discontinued at Penn State Harrisburg as of spring 2017.

The Diversity in Community Certificate program is designed for both students and professionals seeking to understand the increasing heterogeneity of U.S. society. Misconceptions and apprehension arising from differences in class and ethnic background, gender, language, mental ability, physical ability, race, religion, and sexuality often accompany such rapid social change and are impediments to healthy community and personal relations. The certificate program is intended to equip students and professionals with knowledge and understanding needed to devise strategies for building good personal, working, and community relations.
