Spring 2023

Applications for Spring are no longer being accepted.

The Equity and Inclusion Fellows Program is a semester-long program designed to bring faculty from across the university together to reflect upon ways to integrate equitable, inclusive, and anti-racist practices into their teaching.

Participants will engage in the questions below through reflection and interactive workshops, discussions, and activities.

  1. Who are the students in my class? How do I create a learning environment that supports and validates marginalized students?
  2. What are the identities, ideas and values I hold, and how do they impact my assumptions about teaching, the students in my classroom, and the ways students interact with me and with others in the classroom?
  3. How can I design a course that centers forms of knowledge and experience that have been historically silenced and excluded in our fields and disciplines?
  4. How can I normalize conversations about forms of oppression and systemic and global inequities that are empowering and promotes students to be agents of change?
  5. How can I develop assessments that lead to enhanced student learning as well as foster equity?

By the end of the institute, participants will have the tools to design a course that centers equity and inclusion and will practice applying these tools to their day-to-day teaching practices.

The program meets on Thursdays for ten, 2 hour-long sessions throughout the spring semester.

Time: 10:00am-12:00pm

Style: Hybrid (In-person meetings at Medford campus are in blue. All other sessions are remote.)

In addition to the Equity and Inclusion Fellows we offer a bridge program in January that explores how historical legacies of racist policy and practice manifest in higher education today. If you are unfamiliar with this topic, we encourage you to participate as a foundation to the Equity and Inclusion Fellows. Not sure? You can take this self-quiz to see if you would benefit from this program.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email

If you want a participant perspective on the program, you can contact any of the past participant E&I Fellows.
