The Student Government Association’s VP for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Cabinet is excited to revamp the award-winning DEI Certification Program as the DEI Passport Program. The new program version prioritizes collaborative partnerships between SGA, student organizations, and UA’s Division of DEI, to amplify UA student and community member voices. Through this Passport, SGA will highlight accessible and engaging opportunities for students to gain Social Enrichment, Cultural Exploration, and Educational Engagement to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion at the Capstone. Please check out the SGA DEI Passport Guide and reach out to us with any questions.
In order to complete the Passport, students must attend three events from each of the three categories:
In order to complete the Advanced Passport, students must attend three events from each of the three categories above and one intentional training and two special programs. All of the events will be categorized and listed on mySOURCE and in the SGA Student Wide Newsletter.
All students are automatically enrolled in the DEI Passport Paths.
You will scan your EventPass at the event. If the event is virtual, you will use a link provided by the host. Your progress for each category of event (Social Enrichment, Cultural Exploration, Educational Engagement) and Special Programs for the Advanced Passport will be displayed in Paths on mySOURCE.
Attending this event would count towards completing your requirements for both categories of Social Enrichment and Educational Engagement, so you could attend less than a total of nine events and still complete the program if the event is labeled as two or more DEI categories in mySOURCE.
When your organization submits your event for SOURCE approval and selects it to be considered for the DEI Passport Program, your event details will be reviewed to see if it meets Passports Program guidelines:
You will scan attendees’ Event Passes using the CampusLabs Check-In app. Please reference your EventSmart Training and mySOURCE resources.
There is no longer “Certification” for student organizations offered by SGA. Individuals who
complete the Passport will be recognized for their completion of the program, but organizations will not be DEI Certified by SGA. However, organizations who have 50% +1 members complete the Passport, will receive a recognition for their commitment to fostering DEI at UA. Outside of the benefits of advancing DEI within your members, organizations will likely be incentivized by receiving points for SGA Student Organization Block Seating.
SGA will see the number of students on your SOURCE roster who complete the program, so make sure to update your roster on mySOURCE!
