Registration is required, so please RSVP online. Additional information, such as timeline and agenda, can be found on the Assessment and Teaching Conference web page.
The Provost's Diversity Institute begins with two events at the Community Engagement Center in Homewood on April 29. Inside-Out: Experiences from the Pitt Prison Education Project (10 a.m.) kicks things off, and facilitates dialogue and education across social differences by co-enrolling students from university and incarcerated settings. Teaching Side by Side (1 p.m.) follows in the afternoon, offering a community-based learning format that brings together college students and community residents or organizations in classes taught by university faculty. Information on these sessions, registration, and more can be found on the Provost's Diversity Institute for Faculty Development web page. Eligible faculty will receive a stipend for attending these sessions.
