Following a recent campus-wide survey designed to understand and enhance UNO's efforts in helping students meet their U.S. Diversity requirements, a pilot study is being launched to identify faculty scholars who will help identify and champion innovative pedagogy, strategies, and partnerships in this area.
The General Education U.S. Diversity Faculty Scholars will be a cohort of approximately six faculty who will be sponosred by the UNO Office of Generatl Education and Dual Enrollment. The faculty will bring together their expertise to ensure a more coherent and impactful U.S. Diversity curriculum and build capacity to advance greater intentionality in curricular design, teaching practice, and assessment.
Scholars will serve for a one year team in an advisory capacity to the Director of General Education and be paid a $2,000 annual stipend. Full or part-time faculty with experience teaching U.S. Diversity courses are encouraged to apply.
Applications and other supporting material are due no later than Thursday, May 13, 2021, and should be sent to Matt Tracy, Director of General Education, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions can also be directed to 402.554.2184.
