Presidents' Dining Room, Student Union, McNichols Campus

The Institutional Development Core within the ReBUILDetroit program is offering the following professional development session, "Understanding Culture, Power, and Difference: Humanizing Pedagogy for Meeting the Needs of Culturally Diverse College Students," featuring keynote speaker Dorinda J. Carter Andrews, Ph.D. This session is designed for all interested faculty and staff from University of Detroit Mercy and Wayne State University.

By participating in this interactive seminar, our aim is that participants will be able to:

  • Understand how one’s social identity shapes mindsets and practices for teaching and learning and interactions with culturally diverse learners
  • Enhance one’s understanding of the significance of critical self-reflection for teaching and learning
  • Better understand how bias and discrimination is perpetuated at institutional and structural levels to inhibit student success
  • Understand frameworks that support cultural inclusivity in teaching and learning
  • Discuss strategies for practicing cultural inclusion in the college classroom
