The Equity Initiative

Syllabi that Reflect Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Equity Initiative has been compiling sample field-specific syllabi that have been identified as integrating diversity, equity and inclusion – either in the class itself, or as a topic area covered in class.

Syllabi have currently been assembled for the fields of Planning and Public Administration, with Nonprofit Management coming soon.  We have created a "crosswalk" for the planning syllabi and a table of contents for the MPA syllabi that you may find useful in navigating the large number of syllabi available.  This helps link these sample syllabi with similar PPPM courses.

Feel free to review these syllabi for ideas on discussion topics, readings and course development.
