Inclusion and Diversity Statement

Exemplar thumbnail


Olga Griswold, an Instructor at Cal Poly Pomona, includes a statement in the syllabus that reflects their ideology regarding inclusivity and diversity. The statement communicates that all students are to subscribe to the notion that respect for others and their points of view in a civil discussion - even when they may disagree or disapprove - is paramount to productive learning and work environments. The statement also lets students know that whatever their lived experiences are, they have something important to contribute to the knowledge construction in the classroom.
