You should be able to demonstrate understanding of social-cultural diversity and use that understanding to address issues, solve problems, and shape civic, personal, and professional behavior.
Rationale: Because the United States is becoming a more diverse society in a multicultural world, it is important to understand and appreciate social and cultural differences; given the North Dakota Century Code designation of a special mission for UND in education about American Indian cultures and histories, it is especially appropriate for students to consider courses in that area.
You will improve your understanding of and appreciation for diversity when your ES courses ask you to practice the following:
Use concepts like culture, difference, and diversity.
Recognize your own diversity in relationship to the larger society, and understand and respect the social-cultural diversity of others.
Analyze and apply knowledge about diversity to domestic and global issues.
