 Diversity and Inclusive Excellence

Useful Resources

The University of Michigan’s Center for Research on Learning and teaching has a very useful section on Creating Inclusive College Classrooms. Although aimed, at Graduate Student Instructors, it is applicable to all faculty. It includes information on Course Content, Increasing Awareness of Problematic Assumptions, Planning Considerations and Getting to Know the Students.

Vanderbilt University’s Center for Teaching also has an excellent webpage on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusiion. this site provides an overview of the issues with links to a wide variety of information on Inclusive Teaching Strategies, Racial, Ethnic and Cultural Diversity, Gender Issues, Sexual Orientation and Disabilities.

One of the documents listed on Vanderbilt’s site, is a .pdf from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill on Teaching for Inclusion: Diversity in the College Classroom. The link from Vanderbilt is broken, however, the .pdf can be found through the link below. Written in 1997, it is still relevant for the issues faced in the classroom today. The first two chapters focus on Your Diversity and on Strategies for Inclusive Teaching.
