Resources for Educators 

The Inclusive Teaching Faculty Resource Guide was designed by the Latinx Center of Excellence in Behavioral Health (LCOEBH) in support of a campus-wide initiative to advance the commitment towards inclusive excellence and to create a stronger sense of belonging for each member of the UC Berkeley community, in particular, the Berkeley Social Welfare community. The guide is divided into the following six sections: Implicit Bias in Higher Education, Microaggressions, Stereotype Threat, Recognizing Power and Privilege, New Practice Models With Latinx Populations, and Understanding Cultural Humility. Each section contains a list of tools and readings to help faculty examine their role in creating and maintaining a supportive academic environment for underrepresented students.
