Inclusive Pedagogy

The University of Richmond has benefitted from increasing diversity in its student body. In the class entering in the fall of 2018, 28% came from underrepresented minority groups, an additional 9% were international students, and another 7% 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 Workshop

On May 8th the University held an inclusive pedagogy workshop on campus hosted by the 2018-2019 Inclusive Pedagogy Cohort.  The workshop offered a series of breakout sessions as well as a keynote speech.  Faculty who attended 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.
