This is a faculty-focused report that features 20 articles about the importance of diversity and inclusion in higher education settings and practice/activities that can be applied by faculty. For example, in Teaching and Learning “Respect” and “Acceptance” in the Classroom, the author notes a DEEP model (Developing appropriate language use, Encouraging open and honest dialogue, Empowering students to share, Processing information by reconnecting it to course content). These articles contain many practical tools that can help create an inclusive and respectful classroom environment.

Climate for learning and openness

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/282890513_Climate_for_Learning_and_Students'_Openness_to_Diversity_and_Challenge_A_Critical_Role_for_Faculty

Citation: Ryder, A. J., Reason, R. D., Mitchell, J. J., Gillon, K., & Hemer, K. M. (2015, October 5). Climate for Learning and Students’ Openness to Diversity and Challenge: A Critical Role for Faculty. Journal of Diversity in Higher Education. Advance online publication. http://dx.doi.org/10.1037/a0039766

This article examines the relationship between perceptions of climate for learning and students’ level of openness to diversity and challenge (ODC). Using Bronfenbrenner’s process-person-context-time (PPCT) model of student environments as the theoretical framework, the study found that a climate for learning and faculty advocacy for the respect of diverse ideas is positively associated with students’ openness to diversity and challenge. Faculty members who encourage the exploration of different cultures and worldviews help increase students’ ODC.
