Using data for equity-minded teaching of management courses
Keywords: equity-minded teaching, data, equity institute
Abstract: Issues of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) are at the forefront of American social discourse, including academia. While there is great awareness of the importance of DEI issues at universities, faculty may lack professional development opportunities to learn about evidence-based best practices for addressing DEI issues in their classrooms. In this roundtable session, Cal Poly Pomona faculty and administrators will discuss their experience with the University of Southern California (USC) Race & Equity Center's April-May 2021 Mini-Institute for Equity. The focus is using specific classroom-level and institutional-level data to inform thoughtful, equity-minded interventions to reduce identity-based equity gaps in student progress and measures of achievement. We aim to engage participants in conversation regarding shared experiences, struggles, and progress in reaching equity in our courses.
