Bridge Course Information
Intergroup Relations Institute May 2021
We are excited to host the May 2021 cohort of the Intergroup Relations Institute at Colorado State University. Through this and other initiatives on campus, we aim to grow our internal capacity to address challenges around classroom dialogue and inclusive practice by investing in faculty development around a set of research-based classroom practices, working in close collaboration with colleagues from Student Affairs and the Vice President for Diversity (VPD). It is our intention to provide you with a set of experiences that will be stimulating and important as we work together to build expand our capacity to support academic excellence in challenging and supportive learning environments. CSU is adapting the University of Michigan Program on Intergroup Relations (https://igr.umich.edu/) for CSU faculty. Benefits of participation should include increased awareness of personal socialization and how it impacts teaching and mentoring, knowledge of individual and institutional dynamics of diversity and social justice, and skills for creating more inclusive class content and materials, as well as specific inclusive pedagogical tools to help predict student success. It is our intention to provide you with a set of experiences that will be stimulating and important as we work together to build expand our capacity to support academic excellence in challenging and supportive learning environments. Faculty and student affairs participants should be prepared to authentically engage in this workshop which will require substantial participant engagement. The 4 half-day virtual experience will be offered as a track in the TILT Professional Development Workshop. Pre and post workshop assignments are part the experience to reduce screen time.
