As a faculty member, your role is critical in modeling how issues of diversity and inclusion are discussed and engaged on our campuses. We value your academic and lived experiences in addressing these issues. Our series aims to provide a space for faculty to engage in dialogues about their experiences addressing race, diversity and inclusion in the classroom and lab. It also serves to provide concrete tools and skills for faculty to begin or continue to engage in these discussions with colleagues and students.
