Virtual Inclusive Community Development Kit

 

What is an Inclusive Community Development Kit?

The Inclusive Community Development Kit is a user-friendly and flexible kit that gives our campus community the ability to learn more and engage in issues regarding equity & inclusion that impact our students, staff, faculty, and greater Lewis & Clark community. IME has carefully curated a selection of articles and videos that can be mixed and changed to meet the learning needs of the Lewis & Clark community.

Who can use an Inclusive Community Development Kit? 

Most learning happens when it’s through peer-to-peer interactions, reason why we’re encouraging our campus community to use these resources to continue the conversation further.  Here are some examples as to how they can be used in our everyday life: 

  • Residence Halls- Resident Assistants can use this information for floor meetings or programs.
  • Classroom - These can be used to create impactful discussions/ dialogues in class. The resources can also be supplementary to what is being learned in the classroom.
  • Student meetings/ departmental meetings - Our materials serve as opportunities to advance student, faculty, and staff development who are interested in addressing issues of equity and inclusion in our community.
  • Student Government - The Inclusive Community Development Kit can help specific committees and members dive into reflecting on how to remain inclusive of the many identities represented at Lewis & Clark.
