The BUILD Certificate Program enables faculty and staff to gain specific knowledge and skills to contribute to a welcoming and inclusive environment on campus, including:

  • Enhanced intrapersonal and critical awareness regarding the role one’s positionality can play in fostering (or impeding) a more inclusive campus
  • A better understanding of, and empathy for, the experiences of specific identity and cultural groups
  • Increased understanding of patterns of marginalization and systems of oppression
  • Improved communication skills for communicating effectively across difference and breaking down barriers to inclusion

We also hope that you will be able to demonstrate your commitment to continuous efforts towards a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive Boise State University and become a campus leader who is better prepared to promote and support diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.
