CELT has presented the Inclusive Classroom workshops to over 400 individuals since 2015. This Inclusive Classroom framework serves as the foundation for the annual Inclusive Classroom training. CELT will, “… conduct annual training for faculty in each academic department on the importance of, and approaches to, creating an inclusive classroom environment” which supports the “University actions to address racism and discrimination” outlined in these ten actions (PDF), and President Wintersteen’s message from Nov. 8, 2019 (PDF).
