The University of Colorado and the Faculty Teaching Excellence Program are committed to embracing diversity in each and every aspect of the campus community. The Faculty Teaching Excellence Program wants to explore the variety of ways in which faculty members enhance diversity in the classroom both between and among students, as well as in the curricula of courses. To that end, we wish to provide these ideas to our community of teachers, scholars, and students.
