Diversity and Inclusion Certificate
Fostering diversity and cultivating inclusion is a core value of Tennessee Tech. The Diversity and Inclusion Certificate Program is designed to provide employees with the knowledge and skills to help Tennessee Tech achieve our diversity goals and create an inclusive environment for everyone. This program will also provide employees with the skills to foster inclusive excellence in all they do.
The certificate program is an 8-week virtual program that partners with colleagues
across campus. Each participant will be awarded a certificate, recognized in Tech
Times, receive a specialty item, and invited to the Scholars luncheon. Participants

and have supervisor approval to participate in the full program.
