Diversity (DIV13) Requirement | St. Lawrence University Patti McGill Peterson Center for International and Intercultural Studies

Diversity (DIV13) Requirement

Students may apply to meet one of two Diversity (DIV13) requirements through reflection on diversity prior to and following participation on many but not all St. Lawrence approved off-campus study programs (see list below)

Applying for diversity credit is a three step process: 

A) Students will be provided with specific instructions on how to address questions of diversity. They will be advised about the process for meeting the DIV13 requirement before and after their off-campus program during a mandatory workshop offered for students before their off-campus semester. 

B) Reflective work must be completed BEFORE the diversity workshop and submitted AT THE WORKSHOP in hard copy and in the online application file. 

C) A further reflection must be submitted to Studio Abroad by the first day of classes in the semester following their off-campus semester. This reflective work will be reviewed by a committee consisting of the Associate Deans for International and Intercultural Studies and Diversity and Inclusion as well as three members of the CIIS committee. This committee makes the final judgment.

Students will be prompted to submit their reflections online before departure AND after their return from off-campus study.
