Have you been thinking about updating a course to be more inclusive, to incorporate greater diversity, or to promote social justice through your discipline? These are important goals, and yet finding the time and resources to make these changes can be challenging. That’s why the Extended Diversity Experience was created. If you would like to work with a cohort of collaborative faculty, instructional designers, and librarians to enrich, enhance, or reinvent a course, consider applying for the Extended Diversity Experience. Applications must be submitted by Monday, June 25. There are 12 seats available.
