Abstract/Description

Kennedy Union 310

During the summer of 2019, the Common Academic Program, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and the College of Arts and Sciences convened a group of transdisciplinary faculty and staff to serve as Diversity and Social Justice Curriculum Fellows. As a group, our goal was to provide clarity regarding the Diversity and Social Justice Component of the Common Academic Program specifically, and the larger Institutional Learning Goals (ILGs) generally, that are connected to the experiences of all undergraduate students at this university. We would like to share the work we completed over the summer, and encourage attendees to join us in providing input on their experience with the Diversity and Social Justice CAP component and the Diversity Institutional Learning Goal. Incorporating the understanding and pursuit of diversity and social justice both curricularly and co-curricularly we will be able to better support our mission to educate the whole person.

Goals for Attendees

Engage faculty and staff with scaffolded learning outcomes that can be applied to curricular and co-curricular offerings that support either the Diversity and Social Justice CAP component or the Diversity Institutional Learning Goal. Our goal for the session is to allow participants the opportunity to share experiences with teaching Diversity and Social Justice CAP courses, and to dialogue around potential ways in which resources can be shared to help those currently teaching or interested in teaching similar courses. We intend for participants to leave with a deeper understanding of the Diversity and Social Justice CAP component, and identifiable resources for supporting their design and delivery of such courses and programming. Our intended audience is either faculty and staff who currently teach Diversity and Social Justice CAP courses, staff who facilitate programming that contributes to the Diversity Institutional Learning Goal, or faculty and staff who are interested in engaging with either in the future. In addition, any administrators who are interested in ways to enable and reinforce structural change on campus would be encouraged to attend.
