Faculty members at the University of Central Florida have considerable expertise around diversity and inclusion topics. In addition to the specific content knowledge faculty deliver in their courses, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) recognizes the value of providing opportunities for faculty to share their expertise with the greater UCF community, with the ultimate objective being to support the University’s key goal, “to become more inclusive and diverse.”
At the 2017 Summer Faculty Development Conference, participants will begin developing outlines and curricula for interactive diversity and inclusion workshops, with a final submission deadline of Friday, September 22, 2017. These workshops, open to UCF’s faculty, staff, and students, and with the assistance of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, will be scheduled for presentation starting in Spring 2018.
ODI invites faculty members to submit proposals for workshops that fulfill the objective of the Diversity Track theme, Developing and Facilitating Diversity and Inclusion Experiences – Capitalizing on Faculty Expertise. Faculty may work as individuals or in two-person teams.
Submissions should include the following:
- Please see the form below. If you are working as a two-person team, each person must submit their own Registration and Proposal Form.
– Please provide a brief description of the proposed diversity and inclusion topic to be addressed in the workshop. Be sure to cover specific learning outcomes and potential assessment strategies. Also incorporate a statement of how the workshop will support the University’s key goal, “to become more inclusive and diverse.”
