Inclusive Teaching Institute

The Inclusive Teaching Institute (ITI) in the Department of Teaching & Learning (DTL) at the Harvard Division of Continuing Education (DCE) was founded in Fall 2021 and is open to faculty and teaching staff University-wide. We hope to create an interdisciplinary platform for people from different departments and schools across Harvard to connect and learn from and with each other about inclusive teaching.

We are committed to cultivating a learning community and space for connection and belonging to share and exchange inclusive teaching practices, pedagogies, theories, and research. We celebrate and affirm diverse identities, perspectives, and voices and invite you to contribute and co-create with us.
