Teaching and learning in the diverse classroom

As Michigan's only urban research university, Wayne State University is a culturally pluralistic community of students, staff, and faculty. The Office for Teaching and Learning (OTL) joins with WSU instructors and students to create and sustain inclusive learning environments where everyone can be successful.  In addition to course-based consultation services, we collaborate with faculty, departments, and colleges on diversity-related systemic change efforts.  Below are selected resources on student diversity.
