Join us for the Diversity and Equity Course Requirement Summer Institute (DECRSI), a collaboration between the Faculty Center and the D&E Workgroup.
The Faculty Center and the D&E Workgroup invite applications from faculty who wish to develop/modify a course that they want to submit for certification for the diversity and equity requirement. The Diversity and Equity requirement policy identifies specific knowledge, dispositions, and skills that must be substantially addressed by courses that meet this requirement. Faculty who participate in the Summer Institute will have the opportunity to work with other faculty on four broad topics: application and review process; diversity and equity content; inclusive pedagogy; and practice delivery.
The Summer Institute will provide an opportunity for faculty to work on either modifying existing courses or developing new ones with the specific intent of meeting the requirements in the policy. Faculty will also have the opportunity to develop a toolkit of inclusive pedagogical strategies, build an equity-minded syllabus, develop assignments that meet the DE criteria, engage in self-reflection with regard to their own positionality in the classroom, and receive peer-feedback on content delivery.

Applications are due by May 13, 2022. Faculty will be notified of acceptance in the Institute by May 20, 2022.
