Graduate Certificate in Gracism Studies
Learn to Lead with Gracism
“Gracism” is a term coined by Dr. David Anderson, OGS Chancellor and global leader in a faith-based approach to combating racism and promoting diversity and inclusion. Gracism is a practical solution to dealing with the problems of division in our culture: racial, gender, socioeconomic, religious, political. Gracism is a people-centered approach to including, valuing, and honoring those who are otherwise marginalized, disenfranchised, and underprivileged.
Dr. David Anderson
Author of Gracism: The Art of Multicultural Inclusion and Chancellor of OGS
