What Counts?

An equivalent to ten opportunities are needed to complete the certificate. Other opportunities that meet the BUILD goals but are not listed below can count towards BUILD. Opportunities attended prior to BUILD enrollment may count as well. Only four opportunities can count for both BUILD and the other CTL certificate program, Ten for Teaching.

Taking the BUILD Core Workshop before other opportunities isn’t required, but it is strongly suggested to take the Inclusive Excellence workshop as soon as you can. If you have already attended an Inclusive Excellence session on campus (through New Faculty Orientation, Course Design Institute, etc.), you don’t have to complete the core workshop. However, please note that there are differences between all workshops.

  • Core Workshop: Inclusive Excellence (Required)
  • Workshops: CTL Workshops between 1-3 hours long may count for 1 BUILD experience
    • Potential workshop topics include: Microaggressions, First Generation Students, LGBTQIA+ 101 and Trans 101, LGBTQIA+ 101 and Ally Development, Intro to Universal Design, Accessibility, Implicit Bias, Difficult Dialogues, Teaching Diversity Topics
    • Workshops may be online or face-to-face
  • BUILD Initiative Dialogues (max of 2 dialogues can count towards the BUILD Certificate)
