The CTTL has been awarded a $300,000 grant to expand the Equity Scholars Faculty Coaching program.  This program runs for 2 years, with the next faculty peer coach training scheduled for February 2024.  

The purpose of the Equity Scholars Faculty Coaching program is to expand faculty peer coaching that supports culturally responsive teaching work both inside and outside of the classroom. Equity Scholars  will provide in-depth one-on-one peer coaching to allow for critical reflection and enhancements to the daily work of our faculty colleagues. The goal of the program is to work with faculty to actively implement an equity lens when developing pedagogy and facilitating curricula.
