2020 RISE "Kick-off" Workshop: 

Managing the Challenges of Bringing Inclusivity into the Classroom

This interactive workshop will address the challenges that arise when incorporating diversity and inclusivity into the classroom in an intentional way.

We will use exercises, case studies, and discussions to formulate practical ways of handling difficult conversations, covering polarizing or sensitive topics, and acknowledging the multiple identities we and our students bring to the classroom. We will also distribute resources and information for developing course materials and guidelines for classroom dynamics to incorporate marginalized voices, help set the right tone, and create a classroom space that allows all of our students to thrive.

Presented in collaboration with the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Office of the Dean of the Boler College of Business.
