The three-credit hour U.S. & Global Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Power undergraduate degree requirement


The U.S. & Global Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Power Requirement for three undergraduate credits is a University Requirement independent from General Education curriculum requirements and is fulfilled through completion of an approved University of New Mexico course. All courses that fulfill the requirement are listed here. Some courses that fulfill the U.S. and Global Diversity and Inclusion requirement, particularly courses numbered at the 1000- and 2000-levels, can also be taken to fulfill an area requirement in General Education at the same time. You can see whether the courses listed here will count for general education by checking the courses listed under the Areas of Study on this website.


U.S. & Global Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Power (DEIP) Undergraduate Requirement:

The Division of Equity and Inclusion, in conjunction with the Office of Advising Strategies, has been engaged in a project to create a comprehensive and accessible listing of classes that fulfill our DEIP requirement. This project includes synthesizing the history and evolution of this requirement in combination with the practical lived experience of students needing this requirement for degree completion.

Please find below step 1 in this process. This list of courses contains courses currently listed in the 23-24 catalog that can be used for the DEIP requirement. This list is will continuously evolve, with the goal of a comprehensive list spanning the breadth of the DEIP requirement’s academic history to provide transparency to students and advisors. For now, we hope that this list provides a starting point.

Please email with any questions or concerns about this list.
