Understanding UC Berkeley Students and their Experiences

Teaching in Troubled Times Fall 2019 Kick-off: Campus Climate at UC Berkeley

Student peer-to-peer is the highest level of exclusionary behavior. Large percentages of it were happening in classrooms. [We have to think about] what is the role of an instructor in managing that space and setting a tone and intervening when appropriate.

When we look at Pell students, we see they are disproportionately our minoritized students, disproportionately women, [and] disproportionality first-generation college [students].

Event Description

This event was an open dialogue, supported by campus climate data from several recent surveys. Together, the speaker and attendees considered whether the survey results support their own experiences; how the data might shift expectations of relationships with students; and what resulting efforts individually and collectively could be designed to provide an equitable and fully inclusive classroom.
