Testimonials

Jan

My instructors helped me grow my network professionally. Through their constructive feedback and their ability to see potential, I was able to start my career in the field of law enforcement. The program made me aware of the diverse applications of GIS as it relates to crime analysis and public safety. In my current role, I hope to bring that broader perspective and leverage the skills I learned through the program to help improve community safety and engagement.

I can’t speak highly enough about the Certificate in Caribbean Studies and the positive impact that it’s had on my life. The courses are interesting and are taught by passionate, knowledgeable instructors. In just eight months, I feel that I have a much stronger foundation for my personal identity and family history, and an increased sense of pride in and awareness of my roots. It has been wonderful to learn about the various challenges and celebrations that contribute to the Caribbean experience in both local and global contexts, and I know that I will use what I’ve learned throughout my life!
