Diversity, Intercultural and Community Engagement

The Diversity, Intercultural and Community Engagement Certificate Program (DICE) is a certificate earning program for undergraduate students interested in enhancing their college experience through co-curricular involvement focused on diversity, social justice, service and leadership. Through this program, students gain valuable skills in leadership and diversity. DICE provides diversity training through experiential learning and serves as a unique way of supporting student identity and interpersonal development.

There are three levels of DICE: Ally, Advocate and Activist. Students choose to complete one, two or all three levels. Each level builds on the requirements of the one coming before it. Students must complete the Ally level in one academic year. After completing the Ally level, students may complete the Advocate or Activist levels any time while enrolled as a COTC student. With each level, students earn more incentives and recognitions. At each level, students will receive the Certificate in Diversity, Intercultural and Community Engagement. This certificate will verify to employers and graduate schools that recipients are prepared to live and work in a diverse environment and are committed to improving their communities.

Level 1 - Ally: (to be completed in one academic year) 

To earn the Ally certificate, students must complete the following requirements:
​1. Attend 3 co-curricular Social Justice Engagement dialogues throughout the year 
2. Attend 3 heritage and/or awareness events offered through the Multicultural Center 

Students' progress will be tracked through a punch-card that will be distributed as students sign up for the program. Students will have their card punched at DICE events by a DICE representative. Once students have completed their card, they will turn this in and their name will be added to the certificate database for certificate distribution at the end of the academic year.​ You can find out which events count for the Ally track by signing up​.

​​Level 2 - Advocate: (can be completed any time while enrolled as an COTC student)

​Ally status and one diversity studies course.  Students completing this level receive the Advocate certificate and an additional award.  Students enrolling in a diversity studies course must fill out the appropriate paperwork. Please contact Vorley Taylor at taylor.1051@osu.edu to fulfill this requirement.

​​Level 3 - Activist: (can be completed any time while enrolled as a COTC student)​

  • Students completing this level receive the Activist certificate and an additional award as well as recognition at our end of the year.
