Diversity Proficiency

To fulfill the Diversity Proficiency, students will demonstrate proficiency in diversity, understood as either cross-cultural or involving diversity within the American context through a designated course as approved by the Core Curriculum Committee.

Why Diversity?

The pursuit of truth that animates the academic mission of Providence College cannot be rightly undertaken by individuals isolated from community. Education is not merely an acquisitive process, but a formation of mind and heart directed toward the sharing the fruits of one’s contemplations with others. In today’s world, we are more and more aware that these others reflect a wide diversity of traditions, cultures, religious convictions, abilities, and experiences. For this reason, an education for truth must involve serious consideration of the differences within the human community. Accordingly, each student will be required to take a course devoted either to the exploration of a culture outside of the American and Western European ambit or to the study of differences within the American context. Both options reflect the Catholic commitment to the unity of the human family above and beyond all distinctions.
