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.

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. During the pilot phase of the certificate, feedback will be sought from participants to define the appropriate number of learning experiences (possibly around 7-10). OrgSync will have the records of your registered participation for opportunities advertised through the CTL; however, you will need to keep track of any other events and activities that you engage in that are not in OrgSync. A short reflection paper will be required prior to certificate completion.
