About the Event

Faculty play a critical role in advancing student success. As higher education institutions become more globally diverse, faculty are positioned to both advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in and through their work. Additionally as faculty ranks diversify, faculty are positioned to foster a climate of inclusion and belonging to support the success of colleagues from diverse backgrounds. 

The Inclusive Learning Institute, by Diversity Abroad, is an immersive learning and development event that convenes faculty and other education professionals to explore the intersection of global engagement, diversity, equity, and inclusion in teaching and learning. Attendees will engage in critical discussions, share best practices, and build networks to advance diversity, equity, inclusion, and global engagement in pedagogy, curriculum, and co-curricular activities. 

Attendees will also gain access to participant portal a week before the Inclusive Learning Institute takes place. The  portal consists of resources, learning materials, and networking opportunities to expand beyond the event. All sessions will be recorded and posted to the participant portal for attendees to revisit up to a month after the event.

  • How do faculty foster a climate of inclusion and belonging in globally diverse in-person or virtual classrooms? 
  • What is the role of faculty in fostering inclusive excellence in global education?
