Racial Justice and Faith Certificate

Engage in liberative learning and practice emancipation

Rooted in Womanist principles, the Racial Justice and Faith Certificate program invites Black, Indigenous, People of Color and white students to examine their own stories and histories from a faith lens by asking the questions:

  • How do you as a leader make connections between your faith and the way you respond to racial injustice? 
  • What reflective skills do you need to take action that is informed by your faith and will transform your community?
Program Design

7 online learning modules over the course of 2 semesters; courses are asynchronous (fit into your schedule) with some opportunities for Zoom interaction

Course Requirements
