Faculty and instructors are invited to apply for the new Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Teaching Consultants Program. Selected participants will develop and evaluate faculty development projects designed to increase the use of equity-minded and inclusive pedagogies or practices by others within their college. They will earn a $5,000 stipend over the course of a calendar year and have the support of CATL, the Director of Inclusive Excellence, and the Pride Center. To learn more about the program and to apply, please see the call here. Please direct questions to Caroline Boswell, Stacie Christian, or Kris Vespia.
In most years, Faculty College requires an application and a commitment to travel for a week’s worth of reflection and professional development. This year, UW-System has opened the experience to all who wish to attend by making it virtual. You do not even need to be faculty to attend; staff are welcome as well, since we all share in the educational mission of the University. Participants may register for one or both of the sessions. The first session—May 24–25, 9:30 a.m.–noon—focuses on equity-minded wellness, and the second—May 26–27, 9:30 a.m.–noon—centers around equity-minded pedagogy. Both bring in nationally recognized speakers who will offer keynote talks and online workshops. To register, or find out more, please see the Faculty College website.
