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, and staff to continue their social justice education. The workshops and programs that are part of the E.A.G.L.E. Certificate aim to answer questions about:

  • allyship - how can I change my language and behavior to be more inclusive?
  • identity - what are ways I can support specific communities on campus and in my life? How do I start to better understand how intersecting identities and intersectionality play into how I should think about inclusion and diversity on campus?
  • privilege - what are ways my identities give me access to support, resources, and other experiences that folks with other identities don't get? How is this access and privilege ingrained in our society?

To obtain the certificate, participants complete a series of workshops/programs offered by CDI (more specifics below!).

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

  • How to get the EAGLE Certificate


To receive an E.A.G.L.E. Certificate, participants must do the following:

  • Complete Unmasking Your Privilege. This workshop does not need to be completed first, but the workshop does give some information that is discussed in other workshops / programs.
  • Complete 3 of the following:
    • Creating Inclusive Communities
    • Safe Space: Understanding LGBTQ Identities
    • Trans 101
    • Paving the Way: Working with First-Generation College Students
    • Exploring disAbility: Access, Identity, and Inclusion
    • Intergroup Dialogue (*you can only complete one 7-week Intergroup Dialogue)
  • Once you complete the above requirements, 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.
