UC Fellowship Program for Inclusive Engagement

To enhance our efforts toward understanding and promoting inclusiveness, University College has created a biennial Fellowship Program providing incentives and opportunities for UC colleagues to develop and deliver specific projects, initiatives, or research-based scholarship aimed to raise awareness, foster engagement, and/or encourage discussion regarding the college’s diversity priority areas. This opportunity is open to all University College full-time employees. To apply or view more information, click here.

  • Benjamin Brooks

    Dr. Benjamin Brooks

    This qualitative study, ‘Teaching Controversy’, continues previous work on metacognition and subconscious bias and attitudes but turns the gaze toward the perspectives and preparation of the educator around a diverse and inclusive learning environment.

    The project has a multi-faceted agenda of attempting to articulate what are the difficult and/or controversial subject matters taught in leadership studies.

    Specifically:

    • What, if any, relationship exists between these subjects and issues of social identity within and/or between educators and students,
    • The difficulties, if any, leadership educators experience in confronting their own, possibly subconscious, biases and attitudes when teaching difficult/controversial leadership-focused subject matter
    • To identify some best practices leadership educators use to confront their own potential biases and teach difficult/controversial subject matter in an inclusive manner. 

    The ultimate outcome is an improved scholastic experience for students, but this attention to the educator side of the equation adds an important new component to the current literature. 

     


 

Perspectives on Global Issues Workshop (from University College)

One teaching faculty from each degree-granting college will be selected to participate in an active-learning, globally-focused, inter-cultural, academic-practitioner workshop. The purpose of the workshop is to expand faculty understanding of, and engagement in, broad topical policy debates and discussions occurring in the world today, thereby providing them with an additional foundation for bringing these themes back to the campuses of KSU and extending the engagement to our students and surrounding communities.
