Tolerance and Diversity
Launched in Fall 2009, the Doyle Program is designed to deepen the university’s commitment to tolerance and diversity and to enhance global awareness of the challenges and opportunities of an era of increasing interconnectedness.
The classroom component of the Doyle Program, Doyle Faculty Fellowships, involves supporting and challenging Georgetown faculty seeking to foster active student engagement with difference and the diversity of human experience.
In the Classroom
Through innovative teaching approaches, Doyle faculty fellows work to integrate ongoing discussions of diversity and inclusion with the intellectual themes of their courses. The fundamental goal of the Doyle Fellowships is to enable faculty to create inclusive teaching strategies and diversified course content that will transform the learning experience for all.
In addition to trying to get students to think about diversity and tolerance, I actually got them to learn more social psychology; the whole process of thinking about each of the topics in a personal and applied way led to better academic understanding as well as good ethical applications.W.
