Resources for Supporting the Diversity and Identity Experience

Guide Description

Welcome! This resource guide intends to provide resources to support faculty teaching and developing courses for the Diversity and Identity Intellectual Experience Badge:

Diversity and Identity Experience considers how multiple kinds of difference--ethnic, racial, gender, and sexual--impact individuals and societies in the past and present. Students will engage with multiple belief systems, social structures, and ways of thinking through attention to societies, languages and cultures of the past and the present. Students will identify the ways in which cultural, political, economic, technological, and environmental dimensions of society interact. They will place their own experiences in relevant analytical frameworks through attention to the relationships of diverse cultures to each other. Finally, students should understand and work in diverse communities and engage with the ethical dimensions of their various roles.


This guide contains a growing list of resources intended to promote the inclusion of diverse perspectives, non-Western concepts and traditions, and counter implicit bias. Use the side menu to navigate through this guide and view topics.

The majority of resources on this guide will require signing into the VPN for full text access.
