This seminar will review domain literature concerning best practices in diversity, inclusion, and pedagogy, while connecting these topics to workplace and classroom experiences. Starting with core literature and examples from geosciences, geology, geography and elsewhere, students will engage in critical discussion of how race, gender, class and other identities have been marginalized in these fields. Through conversations, reflections, and participatory actions, this course will explore current issues and consider how to create an equitable landscape moving forward.

Open to Graduate students only.
