D&I Certificate Program

Our D&I Graduate Certificate will provide real-world training in D&I science and practice which can be applied across multiple topic areas and settings in health services, clinical and community health, and public health research – it consists of 12 credit hours of courses taught by our faculty who are national leaders in the D&I science field.​

Educational Videos

In an effort lead by investigators at Columbia University, Drs. Russ Glasgow and Amy Huebschmann, along with other national experts, have created short educational videos about important D&I Science topics including sustainability and framework selection.
