Sometimes the creation of an inclusive classroom is less about how we intentionally design our classes and more about how we respond to specific challenges that arise when we teach. In this workshop, faculty will have the opportunity to learn more about changing student demographics at Lehigh and discuss with colleagues several case studies. The cases, based on actual student and faculty experiences, will describe classroom scenarios that, if not handled well, may exclude certain groups of students, diminish those students' sense of belonging to the class, and diminish their likelihood of success. It is our hope that a guided discussion of these cases will help faculty be prepared to speak and act in ways that promote inclusion and enhance academic success for all students.
