What They Are
The Inclusive Teaching Circles are small, consistent groups of faculty and staff dedicated to teaching that is inclusive and equitable for all students. These informal groups meet monthly over lunch to discuss readings on inclusive education, share ideas and teaching strategies, and provide mutual support for the often difficult work of educating.
What Purpose They Serve
An initiative of the A&S Office of International, Diversity, and Outreach Programs, this initiative has three primary objectives:
- To support ongoing faculty development regarding inclusive teaching methods;
- To cultivate a safe space for open discussions of successes and challenges in pedagogical practices; and
- To develop a community of knowledgeable multicultural educators who can serve as role models and resources for other faculty.
