Diversity Learning Objective Prompt Presentation
The Diversity Committee’s Curriculum Group created a learning objective prompt for faculty. The goal of the prompt was for faculty to identify ideas and artists who position diversity as a core value in their work. Faculty from each area of the BFA program, MFA, MAT and SALT shared specific insight connected to their area of expertise at the staff and faculty meeting in May. Faculty discussed how these artists fit within existing objectives and course goals. The exercise generated conversation and provides shared resources for curriculum and 2018/2019 syllabi planning.
