An inclusive classroom climate refers to an environment where all students feel supported intellectually and academically and are extended a sense of belonging in the classroom regardless of identity, learning preferences, or education. Such environments are sustained when instructors and students work together for thoughtfulness, respect, and academic excellence, and are key to encouraging the academic success of all students. Research indicates that many students may be more likely to prosper academically in settings with more collaborative modes of learning that acknowledge students’ personal experiences (Kaplan & Miller, 2007). Hear from a panel of current Bryant faculty members who will provide insight and share how they have been inclusive in their classrooms. They will also discuss the challenges of developing inclusive habits in the classroom.
