Diversity Learning Objectives
According to the University Learning Objectives (ULOs), “all students who complete an undergraduate or graduate program at Cal Poly should be able to make reasoned decisions … based on a respect for diversity,” as defined in the Cal Poly Statement on Diversity.
The Diversity Learning Objectives (DLOs) were established in 2008 as an addendum to the ULOs. According to the DLOs, as revised in 2017, all Cal Poly graduates should be able to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of relationships between diversity, inequality, and social, economic, and political power both in the United States and globally
- Demonstrate an understanding of contributions made by individuals from diverse and/or underrepresented groups to our local, national, and global communities
- Critically examine their own attitudes about diverse and/or underrepresented groups
- Consider perspectives of diverse groups to inform reasonable decisions
- Function as members of society and as professionals with people who have ideas, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors that are different from their own
