Diversity Intensives

Diversity Intensive (DI) courses are essential in liberal arts education for highlighting the centrality of diversity and complexity of difference in contemporary life. At UNC Asheville, the DI requirement helps fulfill our mission in facilitating a truly liberating education while offering opportunities for students and faculty to examine their own experiences and values alongside those of others. Such self-examinations could lead to transformative experiences for participants.

Taught by faculty from various programs, these broadly defined courses include but are not limited to the relationships between difference and inequality, exclusion and inclusion, representation, identity, and social, economic, and political power as it is manifested locally, statewide, countrywide, and across the globe.
