This certificate is designed for students in a wide variety of majors interested in studying diversity issues from an interdisciplinary perspective while also participating in a hands-on community engagement project. This certificate will also explore mental health issues and holistic therapies through an interdisciplinary framework. Specifically, you will explore mental health issues and holistic therapies through an interdisciplinary framework and participate in outreach projects to marginalized communities to address suicide ideation, the use of nonprescription drugs/substances, and other social problems.
