Micro-Courses: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

These micro-courses were developed at the request of LCC and created in collaboration with the Office of Inclusion Education:

  • Reflecting on Social Justice Foundational Concepts – This micro-course focuses on some of the foundational concepts helpful for fostering deeper self-awareness and understanding of other social justice topics. This developmentally sequenced course is intended as a place for reflection on one’s own experience at a pace that feels manageable to each person who completes it. Lessons include social identity, socialization, implicit bias and micromessaging. If you are already familiar with some of these concepts, challenge yourself to consider them from new angles or identities.


  • Including and Navigating Race in the Classroom – This micro-course focuses on the importance of diverse representation in classroom materials, integrating materials into courses, and facilitating conversations around racial topics. This developmentally sequenced course is intended as a starting point for an iterative process of continuous development on best practices for inclusive classrooms. The level of content in this micro-course is appropriate for graduate students and staff
