Diversity in the Curriculum Awards

The Diversity in the Curriculum Awards celebrate and reward Pitt faculty who have participated in the Provost’s Diversity Institute for Faculty Development or in the University Center for Teaching and Learning’s faculty development programs in diversity, and who are making diversity and inclusiveness a part of their teaching practice. Sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the University Center for Teaching and Learning, the awards recognize excellence in areas such as updated curriculum, expanded cultural awareness, development of teaching methods that are especially inclusive and interactive, consciously created learning environments that are welcoming and inclusive, and other changes that positively impact aspects of diversity and inclusion in the classroom.
