Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Endorsement

The Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer invites interested faculty, staff, students, and community members to consider participating in the Bellarmine University Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Endorsement.

The Bellarmine University DEI Endorsement is an online, self-paced continuing education program developed for Bellarmine faculty, staff, students, and community members seeking to personally and professionally develop by engaging with various DEI topics. Learners will complete this endorsement more equipped to help make their communities, workplaces, and organizations more inclusive and equitable spaces.


The endorsement consists of five modules:

  • Module 1: Diversity and Inclusion
  • Module 2: Implicit Bias
  • Module 3: Equity vs Equality
  • Module 4: Intersectionality
  • Module 5: Navigating Difficult Conversations and Bystander Intervention


At the completion of this endorsement, learners will be able to...

  • Define and understand distinctions between terms related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  • Recognize implicit biases and offer solutions to combat them.
  • Articulate what systems of oppression are and how they overlap.
  • Facilitate difficult conversations and intervene during difficult moments.
