The students in our classrooms represent a variety of identities, which intersect in rich and unique ways. While CMU is committed to promoting diversity, individual instructors are not always sure about how this might factor into their classrooms. Have you ever wondered how to make your teaching practices more inclusive? Perhaps you’ve wondered about how you can work more diversity related content into your discipline.
