Congratulations to Department Chair, Norah Shultz, for her new book: Revising the Curriculum and Co-Curriculum to Engage Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
Entering at a critical time in the national dialogue on higher education and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), this edited book presents case studies from six institutions that have successfully enacted curricular change. An inspiring and practical read for higher education faculty, leaders, and practitioners, this book demonstrates that curricular change is an achievable, worthwhile, and urgently necessary pursuit.
