Inclusive Practice Workshops

The Dean of Faculty’s Office, the Center for Teaching and Learning, and the Office for Institutional Diversity are pleased to continue the ongoing Inclusive Practice workshop series we launched last spring. The Inclusive Practice workshops are designed to provide staff members with information, tools, and practical tactics for working most effectively with students from a broad range of backgrounds and identity groups.

This fall, we will offer four lunch workshops that focus on the ways in which students from various backgrounds and identity groups can experience Reed and their learning environment. The workshops will provide practical tactics that you can deploy immediately in working with students in your role as a supervisor, advisor, or mentor to help these students do their best work and thrive at Reed.

We will create a waiting list and if more than enough people show interest, we will consider providing this workshop again in Spring 2017 and give priority to those on the waiting list. Otherwise, we will repeat this workshop again in the 2017-2018 academic year.
