Applications due for Teaching for Equity Fellowships
July 15, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - August 15, 2016 @ 11:55 pm
The Teaching for Equity Fellowship, open to faculty of all ranks, is a year-long series of workshops that provide tools for addressing issues around identity, race and racism in our classrooms. Developed by the Duke Human Rights Center in the Franklin Humanities Institute, these workshops directly address issues raised by students–from all backgrounds–who report feeling at times isolated and marginalized in class. Over the course of the year, faculty fellows will become attuned to implicit assumptions about values, standards, and cultural norms attached to racial and other identities. And they will gain specific skills and strategies to create a classroom culture that benefits all our students. This program is sponsored by the Office of the Provost and Trinity College of Arts & Sciences. Apply before August 15.
