Accreditation can be viewed as the responsibility of Institutional Research when, in fact, their input should take place in the later stages of design. On the front end, faculty have an opportunity to drive and positively impact the process of designing programs for accreditation. By doing so, faculty help to ensure that students are prepared for an increasingly diverse workforce and society, and that the programs that their institution offers lead the way when it comes to DEI. This training examines the role that faculty plays in gathering and planning course materials to ensure compliance of DEI accreditation requirements. Our expert instructor will provide both a systematic and practical approach to curriculum design and assessment that enables faculty to contribute to holistic student learning and successful accreditation reporting.
This program is the second in a two-part series. The first program, Evaluating Diversity in the Accreditation Process: Part I — The Upfront Design, aims to demystify the process of reviewing, assessing, and including diversity in campus curricula. This follow-up program focuses on how to implement DEI from a pedagogical approach. It is designed specifically for faculty from all disciplines who are interested in intentionally infusing DEI into their curriculum to both ensure student success as well as accreditation compliance.
