Without explicit attention to diversifying our courses, most faculty find that relying on the models we’ve had for many years inadvertently message students that our courses and disciplines are not welcoming of diverse people. Of course this is not our intention – but we have to work explicitly to enact our inclusive intentions. Inspired by Black History Month, we’ve invited several faculty to talk about how they have diversified their courses. Research has shown that small interventions to explicitly and thoughtfully incorporate diverse perspectives, examples, and readings are powerful in improving diverse students’ experiences in our classes. Our faculty panelists share their strategies for making Black History and Heritage more than a month.
