Diversity & Multiculturalism

At Duquesne, we seek both to educate students in an environment that is socially just and to provide opportunities for cross-cultural learning, both on campus and beyond.  CTE weaves this focus throughout its resources and programming.

Faculty Learning Groups: Incorporating Inclusive and Multicultural Perspectives into Your Teaching

These groups are generally held in the spring.  Faculty are invited to join a group and to commit to attending 5 sessions throughout the semester.  Topics vary each year, but have included exploring how race, ethnicity, social class, sexual orientation, religious practices, and environmental diversity interact with teaching and learning.  The sessions are led by Duquesne faculty.

Competitive Multicultural Faculty Development Grants These grants help fund travel for conference presentations on multicultural teaching and learning at Duquesne.  Details are forthcoming.  They are sponsored by the Office of the Provost and administered through CTE.
