The Center for the Integration of Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship supports the inclusive teaching efforts of Lafayette faculty and staff members. The Center offers a number of programs, services and resources, including:

  • The Inclusive Teaching & Excellence Series, which involves sessions facilitated by CITLS staff, invited speakers, faculty members, administrators, and¬†Distinguished Teaching Faculty Fellows. Through this series, the Lafayette community explores timely topics related to creating equitable and welcoming environments.
  • Inclusive teaching sessions are also included in the New Faculty Orientation and the Course Design Institute.
  • A number of online resources including a student podcast, guides written by students, and more have been developed to advance inclusive teaching efforts.
  • Faculty members can also apply to participate in the Inclusive Instructors Academy, a 1-semester commitment focused on developing, implementing and obtaining feedback on inclusive teaching efforts.

Ninety-five percent of respondents from an assessment of the impact of the 2018 – 2020 Inclusive Teaching & Excellence series sessions indicated that the event(s) helped changed their mindset, encouraged them to incorporate a new teaching strategy, or led to other benefits.
