UC Syllabus Template and Sample Syllabus Statements

The Center for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning (CET&L) created two new resources to help faculty create syllabi. The UC Syllabus Template  contains recommended topics and some sample language from UC Faculty Senate. This is a good place to start if you are creating a new syllabus or would like to reformat a syllabus. The Sample Syllabus Statements document provides additional sample statements gathered from several instructors and other sources. These statements are examples and can be modified to meet your needs. We also offer consultations if you would like to discuss your individual goals and needs regarding your syllabus and course design.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Resources for Teaching

We believe that "ours is a story worth sharing—about the power of inclusion, the promise of learning and the proliferation of hope. Each of us, in our own way, must live these values into action, knowing that even a single courageous example can change the count" (President Neville G. Pinto, Welcome Home, Bearcats). CET&L is dedicated to supporting instructors in the creation of inclusive learning spaces. We have several resources to help instructors incorporate teaching strategies that enhance inclusivity and respect for diversity in their classes. We also offer consultations if you would like to discuss your individual goals and needs regarding inclusive learning environments.
