The goal of the Inclusive Teaching committee is to stimulate interest in and normalize the use of inclusive teaching practices by Plant Science

Currently, our committee is moving forward with the following activities:    

  • Inclusive Teaching Pledge to encourage accountability and track change
  • Inclusive Teaching Community to support departmental educators who want to learn together
  • Department-wide training opportunities to start the conversation about inclusive teaching practices

Are you interested in signing or learning more about the Inclusive Teaching Pledge or the Inclusive teaching community? If so, contact Liana Burghardt.
