For me, inclusive teaching means thinking about who is included—and excluded—from curricular materials. Part of the experience of teaching for me goes back to my earliest days as a student. In high school, I didn't envision a path to college, but I had exemplary mentors. I managed to arrive at UT in fall 1990, thinking that I had what it took to be successful. A few months later, I was certain that my college experience was going to come to an abrupt end. As a first generation, African American male from a moderate-income background, I felt like an outlier on campus.
