E.A.G.L.E. (Educating Allies and Generating Leaders for Equity) Certificate Program

The E.A.G.L.E. (Educating Allies and Generating Leaders for Equity) Certificate Program is a professional development opportunity for students, faculty, staff, and community members to continue their social justice education within the context of CDI. To obtain the certificate, participants should complete a series of workshops offered by CDI that focus on multidimensional/cross movement ally development in social justice issues. This program focuses on the concept of allyhood and helps participants to learn and more intimately understand effective ally behaviors to a particular community(ies) as a crucial part of their social justice education.  

The program also helps participants develop tools necessary for advancing equity and diversity in all aspects of their personal and professional lives and provides a space to deeply reflect on issues of identity, intersectionality, privilege, diversity, and inclusion   

There's no charge to participate in the certificate program and it is open to all!


To receive an E.A.G.L.E. Certificate, participants must complete of a set of at least 4 workshops through the Center for Diversity and Inclusion. If participants are participating in a dialogue (7 week sessions) for the semester, this can count for 1 workshop meaning that participants would complete 3 workshops and a dialogue.  

The Unmasking Your Privilege workshop is the foundation course and is required to complete the program (see list below for workshops that will count towards the certificate). This workshop provides participants with the conceptual framework of privilege, opportunities for self-reflection and group discussion along with skill-building activities necessary for being an effective ally for equity. However, this course does not need to be completed first and participants can take other workshops before this one.

Other workshops that may be in the certificate include: 

Other programs and opportunities may be available as a substitution on an individual basis. Please contact CDI staff if you have any questions regarding these requirements. 

Once the courses have been completed, participants will fill out the Certificate Request form. After the course completion has been confirmed, participants will receive an electronic certificate (paper copies can be requested) at the end of the semester in which they completed the program. A letter from the Center detailing the courses completed within the certificate and the program learning outcomes will also be sent along with the certificate. 

For more information about the program, please contact the Center.
