Check back Spring 2020 for information on the next institute!

In this institute, participants will explore questions of equity and inclusion in their classrooms. Through interactive workshops, discussions, and engaging activities, participants will be asked to reflect upon and provided with resources to respond to the following questions:

  1. Who are the students in my class? How do I create a learning environment that supports all students, including those that are most marginalized?
  2. What are the identities, ideas and values that I hold, and how do they impact the learning environment in my classes?
  3. How can I design a course that ensures and reflects a diversity of thoughts, opinions, and forms of knowledge, particularly those that have been historically silenced and excluded in our fields and disciplines?
  4. How can I develop assessments that lead to enhanced student learning as well as foster equity?

The Institute is intended for faculty members teaching a traditional or mini course for graduate or undergraduate students. By the end of the institute, participants will have made substantial progress on revising a syllabus and will be provided with the tools to design a course that centers equity and inclusion.

Please note that you must be available to attend all three days of the Institute in order to apply. There is a small amount of pre-work required.
