Program Information (more details to come closer to event):

What does inclusivity mean to you? How does that definition get translated into practice in your approach to teaching & learning? Come join us for an interactive series of sessions devoted to developing an inclusive teaching and learning mindset—a way of thinking that asks you how best to create opportunities for all students to connect with you, the course material, and each other. Dialogue with instructors from all around campus while learning about key strategies, innovative approaches, and campus resources devoted to empowering you and your students. Lunch will be provided.
