For Faculty

 

1. Your Fall Opportunity to Become an Inclusion Advocate

For units that have adopted the priority to have more Inclusion Advocates, some assistance to cover classes during the Institute will allow interested faculty to complete the training. 

Orientation will take place on October 3.  The Institute for Healing Racism will be held on October 29 and 31.  All sessions are mandatory in order to become an Inclusion Advocate.  Faculty are urged to plan early for coverage of their classes.

2. Reminder: Course changes for courses proposed in the Gen Ed Issues category

From the CLAS Curriculum Committee:

As the proposals to convert courses to the Issues general education category begin to be submitted for consideration please remember that the prerequisite of “at least junior standing” must appear on all courses, new or existing, in the Issues category. Examples of successful proposals are found in the curricular system, log 7820 and log 7847 are two examples you may wish to view.
