The Colloquium Series: Inclusion and Equity Efforts to Elevate Historically Underrepresented Faculty and Staff

Colloquium Series logo

The Division of Inclusion & Equity, Office of the Provost, Human Resources, and the Pew Faculty Teaching and Learning Center have collaborated to create a Colloquium Series: Inclusion and Equity Efforts to Elevate Historically Underrepresented Faculty and Staff. The learning spaces will be constructed by contemporary scholars and practitioners who have tremendous insights on inclusion, equity, and social justice in higher education. The motivation for the series is to focus on employee climate as well as a response to ongoing conversations with our affinity groups and campus climate data. 

Please join us for the next colloquium!  Details below:

Beyond Compliance: Disability and Design Justice for Faculty and Staff

This session will begin with a dynamic review of the research to place disability in context within higher education and specifically through the lenses of faculty and staff.  We will hear from a faculty panel about how to best remove barriers and create access.  Participants will also have an opportunity to engage in case studies to better learn to apply policy and engage in lead practice.
