Aligning the Diversity Requirement in General Education with a broader institutional DEI agenda
In this workshop, we will describe the recent effort currently underway at University of the Pacific to revisit and revise the learning outcomes for courses meeting our Diversity Requirement. We plan to share our process from start to the present, from identifying stakeholders to including student voices, and how we were able to align with university-wide efforts at all levels to arrive where we are today. There will be time to strategize how similar efforts might work at your institution, including how to identify allies, include students, etc. to drive institutional change.
