EDUC 707 Global Dimensions and Perspectives on Diversity

This course will focus on local and global dimensions of diversity and their impact on leadership and organizational success. The diverse world in which we live is a composite of many cultures, values, and ways of interacting with one another. The dimensions of diversity include such things as gender, religious beliefs, race, marital status, ethnicity, parental status, age, education, physical and mental ability, income, sexual orientation, occupation, language, and geographic location. Candidates will explore local contexts of diversity to determine the issues that could impact their organization and will determine ways to address the issues proactively. In addition, candidates will explore globalization and how international comparisons are impacting America today.
