Equity, Diversity, and Inclusive Teaching in the Community College Setting
December 7, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm CST
Community colleges are truly diverse settings, attracting individuals from all different walks of life with a common interest in advancing their education. If you are interested in exploring a career at a community college, then understanding the diversity of their student populations is crucial. This panel consisting of faculty and administrators from various community colleges will share insights on student diversity. We will also explore the types of inclusive teaching strategies that best support community college students and help to create more equitable classrooms.
This event is supported by and organized through NSF INCLUDES Aspire grant by the Regional Initiative group. It is the last in our three-part series on working at community colleges, and is part of our fall programming on academic professional development.
This event meets in Zoom on Thursday, December 7 at 2-3:30PM AT / 1-2:30PM ET / 12-1:30PM CT / 11AM-12:30PM MT / 10-11:30AM PT.
This event series is designed first and foremost for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers in STEM/SBE disciplines, but generally relevant to anyone looking for a faculty career at a community college.
No cap. Registration opens on Monday, August 14, and closes Thursday, December 7.
