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.
