Office of Inclusive Excellence launches DEI Certificate Program

The DEI Certificate Program is a new initiative from the SOM Office of Inclusive Excellence in support of the 2019 SOM Strategic Plan to foster an inclusive environment.

The Office of Inclusive Excellence is excited to announce the launch of their DEI Certificate Program. This new initiative is aligned with the SOM’s Strategic Imperative on Diversity and Inclusion – to achieve diversity and a culture of belonging that reflects the people of NC and demonstrates our commitment to those we serve. 

This DEI Certificate Program is designed for SOM faculty and staff to broaden their understanding of topics critical to achieving Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and to promote personal, professional, and institutional growth. This collaborative curriculum offers educational and practical workshops, and allows participants to select from a menu of required and elective offerings on relevant topics including: implicit bias, bystander awareness, and difference related to race and ethnicity, gender and sexual identity/orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, and more.

Please visit the DEI Certificate Program website ( to learn more about the program and how to enroll.
