Reinvent Your Course for Diversity
To prepare students to live and work in our very complex world is an important element of the University’s mission. This is reflected in the core value of Diversity and Inclusion in Illinois State’s strategic plan. Success depends upon incorporating diverse content, curriculum, and perspectives in courses and being mindful of the diverse ways people communicate and learn. Faculty can foster cultural competence through their participation in Reinvent Your Course for Diversity.
With reflection on course content and the ways in which that content is meeting the needs of the diverse student population at Illinois State University, this course calls on faculty to foster an inclusive environment and to help themselves and their students develop more nuanced cultural understanding. A campus that is deliberate about creating inclusive learning environments can also be more successful at recruiting and retaining students from underrepresented populations.
Participants will engage in this cohort through a combination of synchronous meetings through Zoom and asynchronous activities.
A $500 stipend is available to eligible participants who complete the program. Registration is required by Tuesday, May 12.
