As more students from racially, culturally, and economically diverse backgrounds enter our institution, it is important to recognize the differences in life experiences and perspectives these students bring into the classroom. Research shows that some students are less apt to retain information delivered through lecture. Others may lack trust in institutions or authority figures and hesitate to speak up in class. Some may experience stereotype threats that influence their achievement on exams. In this workshop, we will address a variety of factors that influence the experiences of underrepresented students and discuss how faculty can emphasize students’ strengths while acknowledging students’ challenges.
