Diversity on Campus

CU: Diversity on Campus is a two-day, multi-campus initiative inclusive excellence training hosted by CU Boulder, CU Denver, and CU Anschutz and funded by the CU System and a subcontract with the CIRTL Network NSF project. Materials and activities will prepare graduate students to recognize and integrate inclusive excellence into their teaching and research environments.  Faculty and presenters include experts in college teaching, diversity, inclusion, and the scholarship of teaching and learning. Participants will expand their awareness of diversity and inclusion issues in the classroom and learn to incorporate inclusive teaching and mentoring practices. Participants will develop an inclusive excellence project for their classroom or laboratory setting.

CU Boulder graduate students may count participation toward the requirements for a certificate. Full attendance satisfies 16 workshop credits toward the GTP workshop requirement of the Certificate in College Teaching and/or the workshop or project portion of the Professional Development Certificate for Preparing Future Faculty.
