Political Diversity in the Classroom

In an increasingly polarized nation, universities are becoming a focus of attention as ideological flashpoints. We will focus on how those narratives get constructed (fairly and unfairly) and will provide tangible tools for welcoming political diversity in the classroom and in broader University life. No matter what “side of the aisle” you are on, this session will address how the very notion of “the aisle” itself serves interests that run counter to our educative mission as a university, and how we can structure our classroom spaces to be inclusive of all political perspectives, even when those perspectives may disagree.

Panelists:

Andrew Lotz, Senior Lecturer, Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences, Department of Political Science and current and former Pitt students.
