"Exploring Difference and Power” conveys the scope and purpose of this Way more clearly to students and instructors than “Engaging Diversity” did.

No, the name change will not impact individual students’ degree progress. You can fulfill your Way-ED requirement by taking an ED or EDP course.

3. I previously took a course for ED, do I need to do anything?

No. Courses previously taken for ED will fulfill the EDP requirement.

4. Why does my Degree Progress Report still state ED?

The EDP name change is being phased in.

No. Courses certified for ED fulfill the EDP requirement. You can suggest that the instructor update their syllabus.
