Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Resources for Instructors

We believe that "universities are the best places for promoting affirmation and understanding, with spaces for contemplation, debate, inquiry, meditation, and ideation. They are also spaces for artistic expression of anger, anguish, fear, hope, redemption and other emotions experienced during challenging times" (Interim President Beverly J. Davenport, An Open Letter to Our University Community). Our pages are dedicated to supporting instructors in the creation of inclusive learning spaces. Click here.

Congratulations to our fall Active Learning Classroom Fellows

Active Learning Classroom Fellows teach in Langsam 462 and are dedicated to exploring new spaces and approaches that meet the needs of today’s students, which in turn contributes to the development of learning spaces throughout the university. The ALC - Langsam 462 is designed to foster interactive, and engaged learning experiences. Of the students surveyed in spring and summer 2016, over 91% of students who responded would like more of their classes to be in spaces like the ALC.
