Student Testimonial - Karina Ruffino, Fall 2022
"As the University of Virginia’s College at Wise Coordinator of Diversity Initiatives, UVA Wise Office for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, this course definitely built my knowledge and gave me ideas to further implement DEI on campus that will benefit everyone. I had a great time being in this course. I also wanted to say thank you for always providing me with great feedback in my assignments. I struggled a lot in undergrad finding myself but also feeling valued in class. Throughout this course I felt included, heard, and overall, I gained confidence as a student. You have no idea how much the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Certificate has changed my life.”
