Sponsored by the Provost and administered by the Eberly Center, this program aims to enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in CMU courses. Fellows participate in monthly cohort meetings and collaborate regularly with Eberly Center consultants to (re)design a CMU course.

● Have a sign language translator
● Have a volunteer person to help
● Make your slides legible

An Association of Women in Science (AWIS) resource about inclusive language. From the page, "While language is ever present, inclusive language may be more elusive. As it has seen a rapid rise in popularity, it also has lost much of its meaning along the way, making it effectively a buzzword. Talking about inclusivity helps raise awareness, but the much more important work is implementing it."
