Survey opportunity 
The Multicultural and Diversity Studies Committee has been discussing ways to encourage cultural competence in all classes. In order to do this, we need to be able to see how students experience classroom and coursework dynamics. We know that professors work hard, but we would also like to encourage professors to ensure that all students feel welcomed, valued, and included in classes. The committee is therefore reaching out to you, the students, to ask that you share specific class experiences in which you have not felt fully welcomed, valued, or included. The information you submit will be shared with the committee, and some accounts, with all identifying information removed, will be shared at a meeting of all faculty. Click here to fill out the survey.
