Additional Qualifications Complete this section to provide additional qualifications to meet the SACSCOC credentials guidelines. Identify all additional qualifications that apply and explain each item in the justification textbox. Indicate the dates of these additional qualifications and clearly describe the relationship between these qualifications and the course content and/or the expected outcomes of the course(s) assigned to faculty member. Supporting documents such as vita, copies of licenses and certificates, etc., should be submitted with this form by clicking the "attach file" link below.

In Collaboration with the Mitchell-West Center for Social Inclusion, this proposal is to create the Badge of Diversity and Inclusion for all Colleges at UNA. This will be granted by the respective college when a student meets the requirements for the Badge of Diversity and Inclusion in the respective college.

The Badge of Diversity and Inclusion is earned through involvement in experiential learning by students who show intentionality in pursuing immersive learning experiences. It provides a way to recognize the additional Diversity and Inclusion training students receive beyond their formal traning.

The Badge of Diversity and Inclusion will provide additional experiential learning experiences that are designed to reflect the diversity of the workplace that students will experience once they leave college and help prepare them for an ever-increasing global society.
Renee Vandiver (rpvandiver) (Mon, 09 Dec 2019 16:41:47 GMT): COAD is in full support of the Diversity and Inclusion recognition. However, to avoid challenges with ACHE/SACSCOC, the University will avoid placing the recognition on the transcript. Dr. Amber Paulk and John McGee are working with a company that will provide the digital badge for the microcredentials and will share that info in case there is interest in pursuing a similar digital badge for this effort.

vbsavell (Wed, 11 Dec 2019 17:43:00 GMT): This was reviewed by the VPAA office and deemed no necessary to go through UCC/GC due to the fact that it would not be on the transcript nor listed in the catalog. -BA
