Students are required to complete an online learning platform entitled, "DiversityEdu." The purpose of this online course is as follows: 

  • DiversityEdu is being launched as a tool to begin the conversation around DIVERSITY and creating an INCLUSIVE community at the College of Charleston. 
  • This is an online course that delivers students personal skills for engaging with diversity and growing inclusive campus culture.
  • It is a training module designed to help students entering the College of Charleston embrace differences and recognize shared experiences as they join our campus community.
  • We hope it will assist you in getting the most out of your campus experience at CofC and in any diverse community where you choose to live, learn, and work.
  • DiversityEdu will be used to enhance our philosophy of "A Liberal Arts Education" at CofC; developing the "whole person" who will then be prepared to live and work in a global society
