Resources for Instructors Concerning Class Discussions About Affirmative Action
The University of Michigan Affirmative Action lawsuits and the current ballot initiative have brought the issue of affirmative action in higher education into the national spotlight. This CRLT website is an academic resource that provides instructors with materials to facilitate teaching. The Discussion Guidelines and Resources for Teaching in Diverse Classrooms describe ways that instructors can have educational discussions about affirmative action and other controversial topics while maintaining a civil atmosphere. The other webpages include links to materials about the University of Michigan cases and other resources on the value of diversity in the classroom, as well as information about offices supporting diversity at the University of Michigan.
