Lunch & Learn: Creating Diversity and Inclusion Statements: For Faculty

As instructors and faculty, you may be thinking about promotion, tenure, or post-tenure review. Perhaps you are considering professional service, where some organizations now require diversity and inclusion statements as part of the application process. Whether for promotion, tenure, post-tenure review, or service, diversity and inclusion statements focus on how your research, teaching, and/or service can advance diversity and inclusion efforts at your university or professional society. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Center for Faculty Development and Advancement want to help with your professional development. We will have guest speakers who can give insight about creating diversity and inclusion statements that speak to your research, teaching, and service. Come learn, take notes, and discuss how to create and polish these statements. Thank you for signing up for this workshop, and we look forward to working with you!
