Inclusive Teaching Taskforce


The purpose of the Inclusive Teaching Taskforce is to unite efforts to communicate and support inclusive teaching strategies across campus, provide greater insight into the needs of instructional faculty in the area of inclusive pedagogy, and to work together to develop ideas for campus-wide programming and resources for faculty in the area of inclusive pedagogy.

Members of the Inclusive Teaching Taskforce are considered to be “thought leaders” regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion issues in their respective colleges and departments, and have a wealth of expertise in various educational contexts across campus.
