Diversity & Multiculturalism

At Duquesne, we seek both to educate students in an environment that is socially just and to provide opportunities for cross-cultural learning, both on campus and beyond.  CTE weaves this focus throughout its resources and programming by examining the intersections of diversity and pedagogy.
