ALL ACADEMICS, STAFF, AND STUDENTS AT UC SAN DIEGO
The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion and John Muir College are pleased to announce the second University of California, San Diego Teaching Diversity Conference on Thursday, January 15, 2015.
The conference goals are to explore identity and develop student centered pedagogy and practices with an aim to build a more inclusive campus environment. Specifically, the conference will address several key questions:
. What best practices do we see throughout the campus with regards to equity, diversity, and inclusion?
. How do students, both graduate and undergraduate, experience the classroom environment?
. What campus impact does the UC San Diego's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Requirement (http://academicaffairs.ucsd.edu/ug-ed/diversity/), and other similar diversity requirements within higher education, have on modeling practices for teaching and learning on campus?
. How can we bridge the classroom and the broader community to make change in our campus, our communities, and ourselves?
The Teaching Diversity Conference Planning Committee is now accepting proposals. Faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, departments, administrators, staff, and those working in higher education or San Diego community are invited to submit individual papers or panel proposals.
All abstracts must be submitted online by November 21, 2014. Additional information on how to submit a proposal can be found online at: http://bit.ly/1rqEbDP
