Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Higher Education


This course uses multiple frameworks to explore issues of power and privilege with respect to diverse populations in higher education. Our understanding of diversity is always evolving and changing. Recognizing the fluidity and complexity of diversity, this course will critically discuss the intersectional dimensions of identity. We will explore the socio-historical, legal, political, racial, social identity and institutional contexts impacting equity and access in higher education. An examination of conceptual frameworks, self-reflection, and dialogue will be used to examine students' own biases and prejudices.
