The Graduate Certificate Chief Diversity Officer in Higher Education (CDOHE) is a collaborative program between the Departments of Educational Psychology and Higher Education and Teaching and Learning. The certificate targets full or part-time graduate students who seek professional preparation commensurate with the Standards of Professional Practice for Chief Diversity Officers (CDO) established by the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education (NADOHE) in 2014. Master's and doctoral students enrolled in disciplines outside of higher education and multicultural education, as well as current administrative pro- fessionals who already possess an undergraduate degree and have 2-3 years full-time work experience, will particularly benefit from this certificate.

Both non-degree and degree seeking students post baccalaureate are eligible to enroll for the certificate. In addition, current administrative professionals may enroll. All minimum Graduate College requirements MUST be met.

Master's and doctoral students enrolled in various disciplines, as well as current administrative professionals who already possess an undergraduate degree and have 2-3 years full-time work experience, will particularly benefit from this certificate.
