New Discipline-Specific Faculty Learning Communities Available

Summer 2023 Discipline-Specific Faculty Learning Communities

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 (FLC) 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. Participants develop an Action Plan for making next steps on the journey of culturally responsive teaching.


Summer 2023 Discipline-Specific FLCs will occur between May 30 – August 19, 2023. Dates and times for each discipline can be found on the event page.

Summer 2023 Disciplines:

This Summer 2023 opportunity is open to any Minnesota State faculty teaching courses within the participating disciplines and associated subjects associated with:

  • STEM
  • Cross-Discipline

Additionally, high school teachers who teach college-level courses in these disciplines through concurrent enrollment at participating Minnesota State institutions are welcome.

Financial Compensation

Participants will receive compensation in the form of release credit equivalency (RCE) of $1750 in combined salary and fringe.

Discipline-Specific FLCs at Teach Together Minnesota!

The 2023 Teach Together Minnesota! conference will feature several opportunities to learn more about previous Discipline-Specific FLCs.

The FLC instructional designer and equity coach will facilitate the “What the Data Taught Us” session, reviewing what the data taught them and where we can go from here.

The “FLC Project Perusals”  will feature past FLC participants, sharing the spectrum of outcomes from their Action Plans in 20-minute increments.
