CATL Announces 2016-17 Diversity Infusion Project grant recipients

The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning announces the recipients of the 2016-17 Diversity Infusion Project grants.

Casey DiRienzo, professor of economics, and Jen Plantania, associate professor of economics, will integrate cross-country macroeconomic data sets into their MSM 567 course, which teaches the fundamentals of analytics for the new M.S. in Management graduate program.

Randy Williams, presidential fellow and dean of multicultural affairs, and Stephanie Baker White, assistant professor of public health studies, will develop a cross-disciplinary racial equity course to provide students with a critical framework for analyzing systems of racial inequity and creating strategies to effectively support diversity and inclusion on and off campus.

The Diversity Infusion Project was established in 2011. Consistent with Elon University’s unprecedented commitment to diversity and global engagement, the Diversity Infusion Project’s purpose is to develop and implement strategies to infuse the curriculum and pedagogies of the university with the best practices related to human diversity, broadly defined. For more information and to see examples of past Diversity Infusion Projects, visit the CATL website.
