Next UCITE session to address diversity in the classroom

Case Western Reserve University’s campus community grows more diverse with each incoming class. To create the most inclusive learning environment possible, the University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE) will host a session with individuals who can help faculty think about different aspects of this diverse community.

This session will give participants strategies for creating a learning climate that is supportive and inclusive of all students. Faculty also can learn about resources that are available for support and information.

The session will feature Liz Roccoforte, director of the LGBTQ Center, and Naomi Sigg, director of Office of Multicultural Affairs. Roccoforte will provide current information about LGBTQ issues and Sigg will explain how her office can help members of the campus community.

Both of them of them will discuss how to best respond to issues that may arise in the classroom related to gender, identity, race and sexuality.

This session will be held Thursday, Nov. 19, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Allen Memorial Medical Library’s Herrick Room (use Adelbert Road doors).

Pizza and sodas will be provided at this session. RSVP to
