Taking Measure of Our DEI Efforts
With all the unrest and violence that has rocked our country over the past few years, this fall you might be giving added attention to issues of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in your courses. Maybe peers or administrators have encouraged you to think about ways to infuse more disparate viewpoints into your course designs and materials. And if you’ve needed help, there’s been no shortage of higher ed columns and seminars devoted to the topic. Even if our changes are small, such a response to the calamities of our times makes perfect sense.
