The Center for Teaching Excellence recognizes that diversity and inclusion have a direct impact on learning. This page provides an overview of the diversity resources the CTE offers in relation to teaching and learning at Cornell.

A program that brings faculty together for two days to engage in discussions and workshops exploring issues of diversity and inclusive teaching practices.
The CTE can provide customized workshops for departments on incorporating diversity into new or existing courses and implementing inclusive teaching strategies.

Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CU-CIRTL)
Cornell University is part of the CIRTL Network, which includes 25 top research universities, with coordination from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. The mission of CU-CIRTL “is to prepare graduate students and postdocs for the future professoriate, with a focus on three areas: evidence-based practice of teaching in higher education, inclusive teaching and learning, and mentoring undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs.” See the CU CIRTL web site for more information.
The Center for Integrating Research, Teaching and Learning’s (CIRTL) web pages have case studies on issues of inclusivity in the classroom and other resources related to diversity.
