Last year the faculty approved a plan to diversify the curriculum, including the following point:
“Prioritize diversification of the curriculum with respect to underrepresented identities, histories, and experiences in the upcoming process of reviewing and revising the College’s first-year and general education requirements.”
This forum will provide a space for discussing how we can accomplish the goal of prioritizing diversity in General Education.
• What do we mean by diversity?
• How can we guarantee that all students graduating from LC grapple with issues of cultural difference and social power?
• Should exploring diversity be one of the goals of a Core class like E & D?
