Yale Center for Teaching and Learning

Diversity and Education Series

As partners, the Poorvu Center and the Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration (RITM) support events with invited scholars or practitioners addressing issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in scholarship, pedagogy, campus climate, and/or institutional diversity. We invite proposals to fund future events on the RITM website. Please learn more about upcoming events below. The Poorvu Center occasionally hosts Diversity and Education events without a partner organization; those events will also appear on this page. Yale offers many ways to engage in efforts to create a more inclusive, equitable, and welcoming community, please visit the Belonging at Yale website to learn more.
