Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Consultants

Project Goals 

The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Consultants Project seeks to working collectively and collaboratively with our campus community to:  

  1. Increase our institutional EDI resources and expertise so that we do not keep taxing the same people.  
  2. Increase instructor understanding of and engagement in EDI work through encouragement of their close peers and people who teach similar content and with similar signature pedagogies.   
  3. Increase instructor awareness of equity gaps in their courses or academic areas.  
  4. Increase use of evidence-based practices for reducing equity gaps and promoting inclusion in our classrooms.  
  5. Promote instructor understanding of student experiences in their academic programs and courses via the use of mechanisms such as intern feedback and intern led student focus groups.  
  6. Enhance student-faculty collaboration on EDI work at UWGB.  
  7. Provide additional high-impact experiential learning opportunities for students through the [EDI] internships and potential mentored research/assessment opportunities.  
  8. Improve student retention in academic programs and at the university by improving their experiences in the classroom and with their instructors.   
  9. Promote the thoughtful integration of EDI work into faculty retention and promotion reviews.  

Further, the EDI Consultants Initiative will align our actions more closely with our stated mission by providing tangible resources and expertise specific to diversity, equity, and inclusion in our academic programs and colleges.

The EDI Consultants are available to meet with instructors about teaching and learning issues related to equity, diversity and inclusion; they'll be leading educational development opportunities for our campus community for the 2021-22 academic year.
