DGS 290 - Culturally Responsive Campus

5.0 Credits
What does it mean to be culturally responsive in our work as college faculty and staff? In this five-credit course, we’ll review the fundamentals of cultural responsiveness in education and explore what it means to “know yourself, know your students, and know your practice” (Gary Howard). Participants will then develop a project, applying cultural responsiveness to a specific aspect of their work. Participants may focus on teaching, advising, interacting with colleagues, or any aspect of their jobs that would benefit from a more culturally responsive approach. The hybrid course will include online activities and a two-hour weekly meeting; it will conclude with a presentation on the final project.
