How is Diversity and Inclusion in scholarship defined at your institution? This webinar will provide the viewpoints of three faculty panel members at various stages of their academic careers. The panelists will address diversity as it relates to the educational and scholarly role at their respective institutions, including curricular content, scholarly methodology, and the research mission. The panelists will provide an overview of the impact of diversity initiatives on student competencies and knowledge; and why diversity should inform the scholarship and pedagogy of every academic discipline.
