Making the classroom inclusive
The University of Chicago is dedicated to creating an environment where every student feels fully included in the classroom. It is a key component of the Diversity & Inclusion Initiative and centers around the ways in which classroom activities, curricula, and assessments are designed and delivered to engage students in learning that is meaningful, relevant, and accessible. We do this through a partnership with the Chicago Center for Teaching.
The Chicago Center for Teaching
The Chicago Center for Teaching (CCT) provides resources to help faculty navigate issues like diversity, stereotype threat, and bias in the classroom while developing more inclusive teaching strategies. The CCT currently offers workshops, a reading group, and other programming designed to make the classroom more inclusive for all.
In addition, the CCT supports the Race and Pedagogy Working Group, develops resources, and creates other opportunities for learning and practicing inclusion.
