Washburn strives to provide enriching educational opportunities that prepare students for a diverse world. To support that goal, we encourage students to learn about, appreciate, and value a variety of cultures, life experiences, and perspectives other than their own. This list contains academic courses (self-identified by their instructors) that increase awareness of diversity, equity, and social justice issues both domestically and globally. Please note that certain courses may require prerequisites other than the general University requirements and may also have additional restrictions.
