BUILD: Boise State Uniting for Inclusion and Leadership in Diversity Certificate Program


The BUILD certificate program supports campus educators to expand their knowledge and engagement with inclusion and diversity.  It is structured to provide a variety of learning opportunities from which participants can choose.

Enroll in the BUILD Certificate Program here! Contact Tasha Souza ( with any questions about the BUILD Certificate Program.

Purpose of Certificate

  • Gain knowledge and skills to contribute to a welcoming and inclusive environment on campus.
  • Demonstrate your commitment to our continuous efforts towards an inclusive Boise State University.
  • Become a campus leader who is better prepared to promote and support inclusion and diversity efforts.

To earn a BUILD certificate

Participants will complete the core workshop and select a number of learning experiences based on individual interests for development. Participants can begin the program at any time and complete the requirements at their own pace. Ten BUILD events/opportunities (or the equivalent thereof) are needed for completion of the certificate. Some experiences count for more than one BUILD event, such as the Inclusive Excellence Faculty Learning Community (4) or a diversity-related book circle (2). You will need to keep track of any events and activities that you participate in for the certificate. Completion of a short final reflection form will be required prior to earning the certificate.
