Equity Through Inquiry Professional Learning Community
Co-sponsored by the ADVANCE Grant and the CTL
A model community flourishes when it is an open and diverse one. On its
face, this is an inarguable claim. But to *be* a model diverse
community requires first a candid grappling with the structural and
human obstacles to openness and inclusiveness. Only such a grappling
can produce a community whose attitudes and practices are worthy of
2013-14 Professional Learning
Community (PLC) devoted to the study and discussion of bias (in both its
overt and covert forms).
This PLC shall seek to build on the
June 2012 Report of the ad hoc Commission on Diversity and Inclusion
(created by President Krendl in November 2011 and charged with examining
environmental factors and organizational culture in order to create a
multi-year plan for Diversity and Inclusion at Otterbein), and on
questions being pursued as part of the National Science Foundation
Institutional Transformation Advance Grant "Equity Through Inquiry"
(whose Principal Investigators are Drs. Michele Acker, Sarah Bouchard,
and Carrigan Hayes).
