Description

Final summary of the table discussion on the topic of the significance of equity and inclusion in education.

The majority of discussion focused on the need for cultural competence training, and how to ensure equity and inclusion in the curriculum and classroom. Three leitmotifs run through the comments: this is important; this will be time and labor intensive; significant support will be required from the administration to address these issues and implement any initiatives. The topics and suggestions that emerged from the discussion align better with the charge of the Diversity Action Council than that of a future Senate Task Force on Liberal Education.
