Accomplishments

Inclusivity needs to be a bigger part and more visible of what we do at UWGB by:
  • Including diverse classroom climate training for new faculty (CATL)
  • Roll out FUSION model (FNS and SWK) to more departments on campus
  • Faculty show evidence of how they maintain safe class rooms and reward this in merit and promotion documents
  • Create online/short quiz to be used for department meetings assessing diversity knowledge
  • Develop Inclusivity Booster Sessions
  • More conversations and cultural stories visible on campus
  • Increase multicultural artwork on campus
  • Have Residence life programming on culture so students lacking diversity are prepared for classroom
