Description of the JEDI Minor

The aim of the minor is to create a robust program in justice, equity, diversity and inclusion so that undergraduate students can apply these skills in the array of workforces that they will be situated in post-graduation. This minor is designed to reach across SBS College and University disciplines to bring together campus-wide expertise for teaching and learning in these subject areas.

This program aligns with Pillar 3 of the University’s Strategic Plan which states, “As an Arizona land grant institution, the University can build on its unique location and people to drive social, cultural, and economic impact in the 4th Industrial Revolution era. We leverage our remarkable differentiators to reinforce our commitment to diversity and inclusion.”

The minor will have a direct impact on undergraduate learning and growth in areas that are needed across communities, industry and education.
