DPR - Difference, Power and Responsibility
A Difference, Power, and Responsibility (DPR) course provides a framework within which students develop a critical consciousness of issues of difference and power in the United States in order to participate responsibly within a democratic society. General education credit courses with this designation fulfill the cultural literacy requirement of the Associate Arts Transfer (AAOT) degree. However, all programs and college degrees are enriched through the embedding of DPR in the curricula leading to the fulfillment of the college’s strategic intent.
