The Evolution of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Positions in Higher Education Institutions
by Emily Allen Williams
In this interview, Gwendolyn VanSant, CEO and Director of Multicultural BRIDGE, and Emily Allen Williams discuss the growing emphasis on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in higher education institutions. They talk about the reasons behind this rising need -- including the millennial generation's demand that colleges and universities wake up and be accountable to the values this country promotes -- and how DEI professionals can improve their work.

Diversity and Disability
Diversity has become a priority for businesses and business schools worldwide. But as these organizations work to create more diverse workforces and student bodies, they often forget one important underrepresented group: people with physical or mental disabilities.

Diversity & inclusion in the online classroom
Diane Hollister, Faculty Advisor, Pearson | June 10, 2020 in Higher Education
Your faculty meeting starts, and one of the key items on the agenda is a focused discussion about cultural diversity and inclusion in online courses. Of course, you must also consider curricular content, pedagogy, accessibility and universal design, and their impacts on education. All of these affect your students’ learning, motivation, and satisfaction in a course. Where do we even begin with this discussion?

Anti-Racist Online Pedagogy: a reading list
This document started from a desire to identify and share a variety of resources – philosophical, sociological, quantitative, qualitative, reflective, and practical – that can enable educators, specifically white educators, to think critically about their personal and institutional systems, biases, values, and pedagogies with specific attention to the various ways in which racism and White Supremacy are uniquely expressed and perpetuated in the tools, systems, and practices that constitute online teaching and learning. It is my hope that the tools provided here will give educators insight, language, practices, imagination, and hope for creating just, equitable, and inclusive online learning spaces.

Here is a list of readings that educators can use to broach conversations in the classroom about the horrendous events that unfolded in Charleston, South Carolina on the evening of June 17, 2015. These readings provide valuable information about the history of racial violence in this country and contextualize the history of race relations in South Carolina and the United States in general. They also offer insights on race, racial identities, global white supremacy and black resistance. All readings are arranged by date of publication. This list is not meant to be exhaustive–you will find omissions. Please check out the Charleston Syllabus book for additional reading suggestions.

Bringing Inclusive Language into IT - Educause

What Really Matters for Instructors Implementing Equitable and Inclusive Teaching Approaches
Supporting instructor implementation of equitable and inclusive teaching approaches is a critical area of focus in educational development. However, there is limited empirical evidence on factors that either support or hinder instructors’ implementation of inclusive teaching. The results of this national survey study reveal several predictors of instructors’ utilization of inclusive teaching approaches and reported obstacles faced. For this sample, knowledge of inclusive teaching was a statistically significant predictor of implementation, as was being from a non-STEM discipline. Responses highlighted promising approaches, several of which can inform the efforts of educational developers.
