Strategic Goal 3: Inclusive Curriculum
Act as advocates for the design and implementation of a curriculum that is inclusive of multiple perspectives and styles of pedagogy that prepares students to be successful in a changing world and increasingly competitive marketplace.
Aligned with LMU Goals
- Provide a liberal education
- Foster a student-centered university
Colleges and universities have an academic responsibility and a moral obligation to provide students with an inclusive education that will enable them to deal with the contingencies of living in a diverse world. Research shows that when students are taught from an inclusive curriculum they are eager to learn; they are more engaged in the teaching/learning process. They want more inclusive course content throughout the education process. Faculty involved in integrating diversity into their courses report that their teaching is revitalized; their student evaluations improved, and their overall job satisfaction increased (Scott 1994).
