Participants will learn more about research-based, practical strategies for inclusive teaching and mentoring. Although the demographics on campuses worldwide are becoming increasingly diverse, many colleges are struggling with how to foster a more inclusive climate and equitable outcomes for students. This session will highlight the experiences of underrepresented students (to include first-generation, low-income, community college transfer, historically underrepresented racial-minority students, among others). This session also underscores strategies to optimize the interactions we already have on a regular basis in and out of the classroom in order to achieve greater impact.
