You will select an issue or event in diversity and critically analyze it through the four general education lenses: history, humanities, natural and applied sciences, and social sciences. By viewing the issue/event through these lenses, you will gain insight into how the intersectional nature of diversity affects society, as well as both your own individual framework of perception and the choices, attitudes, and behaviors of others in the world around you.
Dimensions In Diversity

This article helps lay the groundwork for defining diversity. As you read it, consider the following:
How do the authors define diversity?
What is the value of having a definition of diversity?
How do people’s stories and opinions affect how we interact?
In what ways do you agree or disagree with the author’s assessment?
The Four General Education Lenses
This document provides a brief explanation of the lenses through which we will analyze diversity, including links to brief videos that explain the lenses and methods used. As you review this document and watch the videos, consider how each lens intersects when we look at diversity. Further, consider the following:
How do these lenses “talk to each other” to address various issues in diversity?
How does each lens comment on society as a whole and impact changes within our personal and professional lives?
What is the value of analyzing diversity through these varying perspectives?

Intersectionality and Liberal Education
Dimensions of Diversity
The readings this week take a critical eye on the concept of intersectionality as a lens for understanding issues and identities relevant to the study of diversity. Intersectionality has gained a reputation for being “separatist and fragmenting” (Butler, 38), but, as these articles demonstrate, it can also be used more broadly to support a diverse, yet inclusive, society. As you read these articles, consider:
What is intersectionality, and how can it be used to better understand diversity?
How can the concept of intersectionality be applied to the issue or event you are choosing for Milestone One?
Do you agree or disagree with the authors’ application of the concept of intersectionality? Why or why not?
