We promote the values of inclusion, equity, diversity and cultural competence in our classrooms and the world around us.
Welcome to the pages of the Multicultural Pedagogy Research Group. We are an interdisciplinary group of university faculty, staff and students focused on multicultural teaching. In these links you will find information on our group, our interests, our activities, and multicultural teaching in general. Enjoy!
Established originally in 2006 as the Multicultural Teaching Community of Practice , we are a community made up of a diverse and talented group of members hailing from different disciplines across the campus. We are connected by our passion and commitment to multicultural teaching at IUPUI and throughout higher education. From the beginning, our charge was the examination and exploration of PUL#5 of IUPUI's Principles of Undergraduate Learning: Understanding Society and Culture. We constantly seek ways to demonstrate the importance of multicultural teaching as it can help us to educate culturally competent citizens, teach the value of diversity, and create learning environments that are interactive and dynamic.
We discuss and develop tools to improve multicultural pedagogy and learning and disseminate our findings through presentations, workshops, and publications.
