DIVERSITY STATEMENT

My obligation to diversity, equity, and inclusion should be very apparent within my classrooms and scholarly writing. In addition to continually researching diversity issues within higher education I utilize this information to inform my instructional practices and differentiate the presentation of course content to meet the needs of all learners. Additionally, I have on more than one occasion focused on improving instructional practices for females, in the fields of Entrepreneurship and Computer Science. Outside of these practices I make sure to mentor students whenever they seek guidance on career and course expectations. This has often led to my “young scholars” securing the employment opportunities of their choice. Through empowering all of my young scholars in the classroom and beyond no student will feel out of place in my classroom.
