Diversity and Learning Resources

Diversity and Learning Resources

The following online resources may be helpful to those wishing to advance their diversity teaching efforts.

Diversity and Learning, Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI)

IUPUI’s portal is a rich and expansive guide for faculty. Developed as a multi-modular resource, the Web site includes a searchable resources guide, a collection of model teaching techniques, an extensive multicultural teaching and learning guide (with attention paid to both theory and practice), and faculty essays on the experience of incorporating multicultural education.

Diversity Institute, University of Wisconsin–Madison

This resource, housed at the University of Wisconsin–Madison’s Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning, recognizes the underrepresentation of women and minorities in the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and aims to encourage inclusive teaching. Resources include a self-guided workshop to introduce STEM faculty to the benefits of diversity; a resource book to guide faculty in planning, conducting, and improving their courses; and case studies to encourage faculty to reflect on the reasons some students retreat from STEM disciplines and positive steps that can be taken to address this problem.

Diversity Resource Database, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

Focusing on diversity resources in various media (books, articles, Internet resources, audio and video), this database allows customizable searches of materials pertaining both to postsecondary and to K–12 education. Although most useful for faculty at Virginia Tech, nonaffiliated users may find its customizable searches helpful in identifying resources.

Difficult Dialogues Initiative

Launched with the support of the Ford Foundation, the Difficult Dialogues Initiative aims to promote intellectual and academic freedom by encouraging conversation about a diverse range of topics. Forty-three campuses currently participate in the initiative through a variety of individual projects. This Web site, maintained by the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression, includes descriptions of campus projects and an extensive list of related resources.

Mosaic Cultural Institute, University of La Verne

This Web site illustrates the University of La Verne’s use of community partnerships to promote student success and multicultural awareness. In addition to describing the Mosaic Cultural Institute’s programs and grant projects, the Web site includes a “resources” section with information about faculty grants and student scholarships.

Intergroup Relations Program, University of Michigan

The University of Michigan’s Program on Intergroup Relations is a multidisciplinary initiative designed to promote social justice through understanding of the dialogic relationships between cultural groups. The Web site includes helpful models for educators (course descriptions, course syllabi), as well as a list of online resources related to intergroup relations.

AAC&U Meetings: Diversity and Learning 2006

The 2006 “Diversity and Learning: A Defining Moment” conference took place in October in Philadelphia. AAC&U’s Web site describes conference presenters and events, and includes links to numerous auxiliary resources. Podcast recordings of featured speakers are available for anyone contemplating this key moment in diversity education.
