PROCEDURES FOR ESTABLISHING OR CHANGING IMPLEMENTATION PLANS FOR THE CULTURAL DIVERSITY REQUIREMENT
 

Summary: PROCEDURES FOR ESTABLISHING OR CHANGING IMPLEMENTATION PLANS
FOR THE CULTURAL DIVERSITY REQUIREMENT
Academic Affairs Policy Statement No. 11
1. Reference
Cultural Diversity Requirement approved by the University Council, June 5, 1997.
2. Policy
In order to further enrich the educational experience of the University of Georgia and to ensure that our
graduates acquire the understanding and respect for cultural differences necessary for an enlightened citizenry,
all undergraduate students will be required to study cultural diversity within a domestic or global context
before graduation. This requirement may be completed by curricular or extracurricular experiences. The
curricular requirement option may include study abroad, supported learning experiences, infusion of content
across courses, or one course or a series of courses, so long as the particular approach meets the approval of
the student's school or college. The extracurricular option may be fulfilled with a community service program
or related project approved by the individual school or college. Having once satisfied this requirement, the
student will not have to fulfill it again unless it is part of program requirements for his or her major. Both the
curricular and extracurricular options will be developed or revisited by each school or college in consultation
with students from that particular school or college.
The cultural diversity requirement should enable students to develop their understanding of issues of race,
religion, ethnicity, gender, and class, not only within the cultures they are studying, but also as applied to their
own cultures. Thus faculty teaching courses or supervising extracurricular experiences should help students
