LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Opportunities for professional development continue to grow at the University of Louisville. At its March 21, 2024, meeting, the university’s Board of Trustees approved a recommendation to create an undergraduate certificate in climate, equity and opportunity.

The College of Education and Human Development will manage the new 12-credit hour online certificate program, and enrollment will be available for the fall 2024 semester.

The program will prepare leaders who work in a variety of fields (ex. military, corporate, nonprofit, health care, government, etc.) to implement best practices and strategies around diverse hiring, inclusive workplace environments, effective engagement with marginalized communities through meaningful organizational partnerships and equitable treatment among all employees in the workplace.

The board also decided to reopen a graduate certificate in engineering logistics. The program, formerly known as the graduate certificate in logistics and distribution, was an 18-credit hour program housed in the J.B. School of Engineering. The program closed in 2016 due to low enrollment.

Since then, the Department of Industrial Engineering faculty revised the curriculum to be a nine-credit-hour program and relaunched it for the spring 2024 semester. The revised program is available online and addresses the pressing needs for talent in logistics planning and analytics in the current marketplace.
