The coming year (2016–17) has been designated as The Year of Diversity
by the Provost, giving the topics of diversity, inclusion, and understanding a
special emphasis at the University of Pittsburgh. The Office of the Provost has
initiated a special partnership with the University Center for Teaching and
Learning to offer many professional and personal development opportunities
throughout the year with a special focus on understanding the intersection of
various identities within the student experience. We hope this particular series
will give faculty a chance to hear what our students have to say about this
important topic and to reflect on what it means for their teaching practice.
These events are open to all faculty and Teaching Assistants.
