Doyle Seminars 2014-2015 Annual Report
April 15, 2016
The Doyle Seminars engage faculty and students in an in-depth study of diversity and difference in many forms, including national, social, cultural, religious, and moral identities. For students, studying these issues is a key way to develop both curiosity and empathy—two skills required of future leaders in a pluralistic world. The seminars help students learn to engage diversity and difference through faculty mentorship, research projects, scholarly engagement with expert guests, and co-curricular opportunities for exploration. Participating faculty develop and share best practices around research and writing about the complex challenges of teaching diversity topics in the classroom. This 2014-2015 annual report documents the key themes of the courses, how the faculty transformed their course into a Doyle Seminar, and highlights of the student research projects.
