Diversity Scholar - Call for Applicants

Call for Applicants extended to October 11, 2019

Faculty who are interested in learning about diversity and creating an inclusive classroom culture are encouraged to apply for a $250 Diversity Scholar stipend. A limited number of stipends will be available.  Past participants in this program earned a Diversity Scholars certificate serving as a mentor on diversity and inclusion to other faculty in their department.

Interested applicants should submit a one-page application to the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning by midnight, date to be announced soon. This should be a one-page letter outlining your primary goals for integrating multicultural and diverse perspectives in your teaching.

Successful applicants are expected to participate in the four Diversity Workshops facilitated by the Diversity Fellow, Dr. Judith Matinez. They will also be asked to write a reflective essay on how they incorporated this new knowledge into their practice sharing practical teaching tips with other faculty for creating an inclusive learning environment.
