Diversity and Inclusion Studies is an interdisciplinary minor administered by the Department of Behavioral Sciences & Leadership that consists of humanities and social science courses. Ameri-ca is a multicultural polity and demands knowledgeable and pragmatic thinkers who under-stand the range of human experiences. The Diversity and Inclusion Studies Minor (DISM) exposes cadets to varied perspectives &methodologies for understanding and studying the humanities. By carefully drawing from exist-ing courses in multiple departments, the DISM complements and enhances the core curriculum, academic majors, and several West Point Centers and committees. The DISM helps fulfill the Superintendent’s and Dean’s vision for diversity and inclusion at West Point. Moreover, the DISM at West Point offers cadets a framework for critically and creatively thinking about the broader im-pact of diversity and inclusion at the individual, organizational, societal, and/or global levels. It also provides our cadets opportunities to pursue diversity and inclusion in intra-, multi-and inter-disciplinary ways.
