DICE Certificate Program

The Diversity, Intercultural and Community Engagement (DICE) Certificate Program through the Center for Belonging and Social Change is for students interested in exploring diversity, intercultural engagement and socially just leadership. The DICE certification is a great way to demonstrate a vested interest in diversity and intercultural engagement to future schools and employers!

You can receive credits for the DICE certificate by engaging a variety of programs including cultural events, Social Justice Engagement workshops related to equity and inclusion, signature MCC programming, approved service projects and/or diversity leadership retreats. 

DICE is a largely self-guided experience for OSU students, staff, and faculty. You choose the events and complete the reflections based on your own schedule. You need to complete 12 credits in 1 academic year in order to receive a DICE Certificate.

Credit = 1 program/workshop + a 125 word reflection

DICE = 12 Credits in 1 Academic Year.

Registration is now open, use go.osu.edu/diceregistration to enroll.

After you have signed up through our system, you will receive a confirmation email from our DICE Program Coordinator. You will be enrolled in the DICE Carmen course where you can submit your reflections, track your progress and complete the program. If you are a member of one of our DICE program partners, please be sure to select your program when you register. 

Program Details

DICE points can be earned 1, 2 or 3 points at a time. The DICE Program Overview provides details about how these points are earned. You will have a 2 week window to submit reflections after attending programs.
