The call for applicants has been extended to October 11
Good news! The FCTL and Diversity and Inclusion have partnered on these stipends and the funding amount has been increased to $250.
Faculty who are interested in learning about diversity and creating an inclusive classroom culture are encouraged to apply for this $250 Diversity Scholar stipend. A limited number of stipends will be available. Past participants in this program earned a Diversity Scholars certificate serving as a mentor on diversity and inclusion to other faculty members in their department.
Interested applicants should submit a one-page application to the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning by the end of the day, October 11, 2019. This should be a one-page letter outlining your primary goals for integrating multicultural and diverse perspectives in your teaching.
Successful applicants are expected to participate in the four Diversity Workshops facilitated by the Diversity Fellow, Dr. Blanca Judith Martínez. These sessions will be offered during the fall and spring semesters. Diversity Scholars will also be asked to write a reflective essay on how they are incorporating this new knowledge into their practice and sharing practical teaching tips with other faculty for creating an inclusive learning environment.
