Dear fellow Ephs,

Last year, the faculty of the College passed a motion introducing a new curricular requirement to replace the Exploring Diversity Initiative. Starting Fall 2018, courses will be offered as part of the College’s new Difference, Power, and Equity requirement (DPE). DPE courses examine the mechanisms, histories, and practices behind social, political and philosophical structures of difference and power. They are centrally focused around issues of difference, diversity, inequality, and/or inclusivity.
The Committee on Educational Affairs would like to solicit suggestions for topics that students would like to investigate in DPE courses.
A brief disclaimer: the DPE initiative is new, and these suggestions will contribute to the long term discussion about courses that will be offered in the future, but are not guaranteed to be developed into courses in the coming semesters.
Suggested areas of study may include but are not limited to: ability/disability, body size, citizenship status, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic background. This is not intended to be an exhaustive list, but should give an idea of the types of issues that might be examined in a DPE course.
Suggestions may be submitted here: form will close 11/26.
Thanks so much for your participation!
The Committee on Educational Affairs
