Abstract: This paper is authored by Kirsta James and Kitrina Carlson. This paper is included in the Proceedings of the ASQ 2012 Advancing the STEM Agenda Conference at the UW-Stout July 16-17, 2012. Diversity Awareness Education in an Introductory Seminar Course to Promote Social Responsibility Description: The Applied Science program at the University of Wisconsin-Stout has incorporated diversity awareness education into the Applied Science Profession I (APSC 101) freshmen seminar course for the past three years to promote social responsibility. Since that time, over two hundred APSC 101 students have been involved with in-classroom and out-of-classroom diversity awareness experiences. To assess the effectiveness of the programming, a pre-and post-course survey was implemented. Results indicate APSC 101 programming is helping students become more aware of ways they can support a more inclusive campus community and an increasingly culturally diverse working environment.
