2018-2019 Identity & Allyship Awareness Certificate graduates in partnership with Residential Education Office

  • The Identity & Allyship Awareness Certificate is a year-long, foundational social justice consciousness program facilitated through the Center for Inclusive Excellence in partnership with One SDSU. There will also be opportunities to connect with the Cultural Centers on campus. Students learn about the foundations of inclusion such as implicit bias, microaggressions, identity, privilege, and inclusive communication. Then, throughout the year, participate in a variety of learning formats to critically examine one's own beliefs regarding their personal identities and privileges while understanding how they can play a role in active, lifelong allyship and humility.

  • This spring 2021 semester we are offering an introduction into implicit biases and microaggressions workshop as part of our commitment to foster an inclusive, anti-racist campus community.

  • Implicit biases and microaggressions create inequities and contribute to an uncomfortable learning or working environment. This workshop, developed by the CIE team, introduces these concepts through a student-lens to increase their understanding of inequities on campus, and it serves as a prerequisite for many other programs such as the Identity & Allyship Awareness Certification Program.

    This is an hour and a half long interactive workshop offered on these dates: 2/1/21, 2/24/21, 3/1/21, 3/29/21, 4/9/21 . Please register at this link:
