The Provost’s Award for Diversity in the Curriculum recognizes faculty who have taught a modified course or revised curricula to strengthen diversity and inclusion, resulting in changes of impact. Any full-time or part-time Pitt faculty member who has participated in diversity initiatives at the University may apply for this award. Please encourage faculty who have embraced inclusive teaching practices to submit an application. The guidelines for the award and the application form are available on the Provost's Award for Diversity in the Curriculum web page, and the deadline for applications is October 18, 2019.
Blackboard will be unavailable on Thursday, May 2, during an extended maintenance period which starts at 12:01 a.m. Thursday and ends at 11:59 p.m. If work is completed ahead of schedule, the system will be returned to service and an announcement will be posted on the Information Technology Department's website. This maintenance is necessary to maintain the stability and reliability of Blackboard. During this system update, instructors will not be able to synchronize new materials between Blackboard and Panopto, but you can still log in to Panopto to view video content.
