Diversity and Inclusion 

We are committed to supporting diversity and inclusion in teaching and learning.  The resources on this page are intended to provide guidance, information, and background for faculty, staff, and students who seek to bring the concepts of diversity and inclusion into any type of class.  We believe that one of the most influential avenues by which our university can establish and maintain a climate that values diversity and inclusion is by offering diverse examples, case studies, concepts, and narratives in classes across the curriculum.  These resources are intended to assist all of us who teach in all disciplines. 

The resources listed below were compiled from recommendations provided by faculty across the university.  If you know of additional resources that should be on these lists, please send the full citation to teachingandlearning@k-state.edu
