Diversity Scholars Applications
KU faculty are invited to apply for CTE’s 2017_2018 Diversity Scholars Program to promote broader faculty adoption of teaching methods, strategies, and course materials that enhance inclusivity and respect for diversity in KU classes. The Diversity Scholars Program is organized around a collegial, hands-on, monthly seminar for a small cohort of interested faculty who would like to engage in these topics at a deliberate and self-reflective level. Faculty in the seminar will work together—through readings, discussion, and the workshopping of ideas—on incorporating greater attention to diversity (broadly defined) and more inclusive practices in their classes. Participants will also discuss department- or unit-specific strategies for working with colleagues in their own areas to promote and facilitate inclusive teaching and mentoring strategies in their departments / units. Applications for AY 2017-2018 are due August 25, 2017. See the Diversity Scholars call for applications for more information.
