Teaching for Equity Fellows is a year-long series of workshops that give faculty tools to better engage all students in our classrooms, labs, and learning spaces. The workshops are specifically designed to address a number of teaching and mentoring topics that may arise around race and identity. Faculty fellows gain specific skills and strategies to create a culture that improves learning for all our students. The Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute developed the program, and it is sponsored by Trinity College of Arts & Sciences, the Office for Faculty Advancement, and the School of Medicine and the School of Nursing.

The Fellowship includes a two-day framework session in August or September, and seven monthly four-hour workshops that build skills and support your ability to improve culture, understand and work with students, and reflect on curriculum and inclusive teaching practices.
