(High Impact Diverse Perspectives)
Definition: Help students explore cultures, life experiences, and worldviews different from their own. These studies—which may address U.S. diversity, world cultures, or both—often explore differences such as racial, ethnic, and gender inequality, or continuing struggles around the globe for human rights, freedom, and power.
- Course content (at least 50%) and at least one significant assignment focuses on issues of US diversity, world cultures, or both.
- Diverse perspectives are centered.
- Course instruction uses reflection, deep discussion, equity-minded teaching practices, and active learning strategies.
- Courses may also engage in project-based learning, COIL/virtual exchange, service learning, sustainability projects, field trips, philanthropy, etc. to allow students to extend their learning beyond the classroom.
Student Learning Outcomes:
- Students will explain (a) new or different perspective(s) as a result of learning from or with diverse communities or cultures.
- Students will create conclusions by combining examples, facts, or theories from more than one field of study or perspective.
