Diversity & Inclusion Resources

Diversity and Inclusion Teaching and Learning Resources

 

The Patient Voice series promotes individuals from various communities sharing their patient stories and suggestions on how to improve health care access and quality.

Inclusive Teaching & Learning in the Classroom involves intentionally creating an equitable classroom environment that actively engages all students in meaningful and relevant learning, values the contributions of students’ diverse backgrounds, and acknowledges systemic and institutional challenges.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion offers A Call to Action and provides training, ways to engage, and their Get Involved page has educational resources.

Resources for faculty, staff, and students on Healthcare for transgender individuals. Topics will cover LGBT+ health for medical providers with an emphasis on transgender, non-gender binary, and intersexed patients.

In September 2020 the University's Transgender Health program presented to the College of Health. Some of the topics include:

  • terminology and what terms to use
  • talking to patients about sex and gender identity
  • inclusivity of all, but focused on individuals that are transgender or gender-nonbinary
  • addressing general health as well as health issues particular to the transgender community
