NEean Webinar: What Does it Mean to be Competent in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion?
Wednesday, August 04, 2021
Category: Other Events

In this workshop we will discuss the concepts of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) as “competencies”, and introduce a rubric developed at Champlain College to define DEI for the campus.  Conceptualizing DEI as an academic literacy allowed the Champlain community to consider how these concepts appear in classes and elsewhere; how they encompass skills and habits of mind that can be learned.  But defining DEI in higher education contexts presents some challenges for assessment and for the higher education context, which inherently values intellectual openness. This workshop examines how the definition and rubric were developed, how they have been used, and some of the complex issues of defining and assessing DEI in higher education.
