Inclusive Teaching and Research Resources

Internal and External Resources 

  • The USU Inclusion Center has provided this land acknowledgment
  • For an overview of what the research says about inclusive education, see the University of Michigan’s Why Do It? Research on Inclusive Teaching.
  • The University of Arizona’s Creating Inclusive Classrooms provides resources for designing inclusive courses, navigating diversity in the classroom, and safeguarding against unconscious bias.
  • Inclusive Syllabus Design from UCLA’s Center for Education Innovation & Learning in the Sciences offers sample syllabi, syllabi templates, and syllabi evaluation tools.
  • The Harriet W. Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning at Brown provides evidence-based inclusive teaching and assessment strategies. They also provide examples of diversity and inclusion statements for syllabi.
  • The Chronicle of Higher Education offers ideas for how universities can promote diversity and inclusion and develop support systems for faculty of color. 
  • The Glossary of Terms from the Human Rights Campaign provides an overview of terms often used in conversations about sexual orientation and gender identity. A more detailed list can be found at UCLA’s LGBTQIA Resource Center.  
  • Several professional associations (including the American Sociological Association and the American Historical Association) have issued statements discouraging the use of student evaluations as a primary factor in faculty promotion, salary increase, and appointment due to evidence of bias towards women and minorities. The Chronicle of Higher Education provides a good overview of the bias and Inside Higher Ed provides additional steps faculty members can use when discussing student evaluations in annual reviews.
  • The Human Rights Campaign provides helpful strategies for Collecting Transgender-Inclusive Gender Data in Workplace and Other Surveys.
