Diversity and Inclusion Resource Modules

In our growing role as a leader in the university on issues of Diversity and Inclusion, we know that many across our campus are interested in the types of lecture topics our faculty provide in their day-to-day classes. Due to this, the CLA dean’s office will be offering a chance to apply for summer compensation to assist us with the creation of individual Diversity Resource Modules to be placed online for others across the university to use in creating lectures on diversity-related topics. For the purposes of these proposals, a broad definition will be used for “diversity” including race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, nation of origin, social class, disability, and documentation status.
