What limitations are there about what counts for BUILD?

BUILD opportunities need to be approved and, in the spirit of broad learning, no more than 3 BUILD credits for learning about any one specific identity group (e.g., students with disabilities/accessibility, first generation students, refugees) may count towards the certificate.

What is the timeline?

There is no specific timeline for completing your certificate. Participants may take as long as they need.

Due to the number of events held by many different units on campus, participants must keep track of the events/opportunities that they have attended. This template (document download) can be filled in as you go to help you keep track!

Who can participate?

Currently, we are only offering BUILD for staff and faculty.

What is the cost?

This program is free to participate in.

Can I receive a stipend for completing the certificate?

Stipends are awarded based on your department’s policy. To see if you qualify to receive a stipend upon completing the BUILD certificate, please contact your department chair.
