Inclusive Gatherings

The Inclusive Gatherings series was spearheaded by Stephen “Kip” Tobin, Jimena Rodriguez, and Carla Suhr. Tobin, Rodriguez, and Suhr are Mellon-EPIC Fellows that participated in the Inclusive Classrooms Seminar in Teaching Excellence in Fall 2017. Professor Maite Zubiaurre was one of the co-leads for the Inclusive Classrooms STE (with Professor Steven Nelson) and served as a mentor for the project. Inclusive Gatherings aimed to create a space for UCLA instructors to come together to learn about inclusivity in the classroom and best pedagogical practices.
