The Faculty Seminar on Challenging Racism and Teaching for Inclusivity has run each semester since fall 2018. The purpose is for participants:
- to become agents for change in their departments, schools/colleges, and/or discipline;
- to become familiar with major theoretical frameworks employed by social/behavioral scientists and other academics/intellectuals/pundits involved in these discussions in analyzing and addressing racism/exclusion, interpreting current controversies, and advancing productive dialogue on such sensitive and polarizing issues;
- to reflect on the implications of racial disparities and racial injustice on higher education curricula, pedagogical strategies, and classroom management;
- to develop a new course, or revise one that has been offered in the past, in a way that demonstrates a more acute sensitivity and commitment to teaching for inclusivity in their disciplines.
