The University of Calgary has announced that it is launching a new Embedded Certificate in Pluralism and Global Citizenship. All UCalgary students who can complete the course requirements “as a complement to their program of study” will be able to take the certificate. “We are operating in an increasingly complex society and employers are looking for people who can work in diverse settings and understand why people have diverse experiences,” said Dr Gavin Cameron, academic coordinator for the program. “Students will learn to recognize their own assumptions and values, appreciate different sets of values shaped by other cultures and identities, develop a disposition toward openness and an active engagement with people from diverse backgrounds who have their own perspectives and interests.”
