Diversity and Social Justice Committee

The mission of the TELS Diversity and Social Justice Committee is to promote diversity and social justice within the department in ways that are actionable, not just performative. Our major initiatives include developing strategies for educating department faculty, staff and students about social justice and diversity in their teaching, research and outreach and diversifying teacher education.

In 2020-2021 the committee developed a set of standards to guide our teaching, research and service. Going forward, the committee will offer a series of workshops for the department to give feedback on the standards and to give practical strategies for incorporating the standards into our teaching. Contact the Department Head if you would like to join the committee. All are welcome.
