Creating Inclusive Curriculum and Classrooms

While taking on issues of racism, power, privilege and social justice across the disciplines can seem like a daunting task, we strongly believe in its importance and help our faculty and staff support one another in the process. We provides resources that can help address these issues and enhance your competence in dealing with them.


Below is a list of resources IDS can provide to help you on the journey toward creating an inclusive climate for all students and integrating culture and social justice issues throughout the curriculum.
