Inclusive Pedagogy

The University of Richmond has benefitted from increasing diversity in its student body. In the class entering in the fall of 2017, 30% came from underrepresented minority groups, an additional 10% were international students, and another 8% were first generation or Pell grant recipients not already in those other groups. Students also represented a range of religious, gender, political, and sexual orientations. 

Educational access, however, does not always translate into meaningful inclusion or the dividends it affords. This program seeks to support the development and incorporation of course content and pedagogical practices that enhance inclusion in the classroom.

Inclusive Pedagogy Cohort

On May 8th there will be an inclusive pedagogy workshop on campus hosted by the 2018-2019 Inclusive Pedagogy Cohort.  The workshop will run from 10-5 and will have a series of breakout sessions as well as a keynote speech.  Faculty who attend the workshop and then complete two  follow-up meetings - once in the fall and once in the spring semester - will receive a $300 stipend.

We are excited by the interest in inclusive pedagogy among our faculty and pleased to extend these opportunities across the University.  If you are planning on attending please RSVP to Cindy Sharp at
