Building an Inclusive Syllabus: webinar & resources

Our Wednesday, October 27, 2021, APSA event featured expert panelists providing practical tips and suggestions for political science educators from all subfields to develop strategies to deliberately build a classroom environment where all students have equal access to knowledge, tools to build courses that are representative of the contributions of historically excluded scholars, and assignments or activities that present crucial introductory political science content to an increasingly diverse undergraduate student body.
