New Discipline-Specific Faculty Learning Communities Available

Fall 2022 Discipline-Specific Faculty Learning Communities

Participating disciplines: Law Enforcement, History, Computer Science/MIS, and Mass Communication.

Minnesota State received funding through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund managed by Minnesota’s Office of Higher Education to support faculty members within disciplines to come together to explore culturally responsive teaching practices.

This opportunity is open to any Minnesota State employee within the participating disciplines, or fields of study, so encourage others who may be interested to register.

Joining a Discipline-Specific Faculty Learning Community is a great chance for colleagues to re-engage with others in their discipline or those they met at previous Teach Together Minnesota! conferences, and to explore evidence-based strategies that could reduce equity gaps that exist within our programs.
