The General Education Program invites applications for an inaugural Equity Fellow. The purpose of this fellowship is to support an interested faculty member who will coordinate program efforts to foreground diversity, equity, inclusion, justice and accessibility outcomes for students. The fellowship timeline is through June 2023, with some flexibility in the start and end dates.

The fellowship primarily supports of the Equity Tag initiative, which is currently underway as a preliminary prototype. Developed over two years in collaboration with student and faculty groups, the tag initiative is a means for students to find courses that address diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, or accessibility in an intentional way. Courses are tagged by section, with clear communication of the specific characteristics that embody the tag philosophy. Tagging is voluntary at the request of the instructor and upon successful completion of a concise application.

The Equity Fellow will:

  • engage faculty teaching tagged courses and those interested in doing so in a community of practice or faculty learning community;
  • reach out to CFI and other faculty groups promoting inclusive pedagogies;
  • collect data, help publicize the tag to campus partners, and engage with students in the tagged courses.

Beyond these specific tasks relating to the current version of the Equity Tag, the fellow will have the opportunity to envision and enact other ways to evolve this initiative and to work alongside members of the General Education Program on this and related equity efforts.

The fellowship commitment is approximately 8 hours per week when classes are in session, with a stipend of $3500. To apply, please send a statement of no more than 500 words to by February 14, 2023. This statement should address relevant interest in and experience with DEIJA-relevant curricula and pedagogy as well as any experience with faculty interest groups (FIGs) or communities of practice.
