Tilford Learning Outcomes

Course funded by Tilford Fellowships must meet the following learning outcomes:

  • To foster in students a knowledge of and appreciation for the diversity of our human and natural world;
  • To promote students’ understanding of their own and other cultures that goes beyond stereotypes;
  • To teach students how to successfully interact, both professionally and personally, with others in an increasingly diverse domestic environment and an increasingly interconnected world;
  • To encourage students to critically reflect on their own social identities and on their positions with respect to others;
  • To help students to recognize and analyze the socially-constructed roots of oppression and privilege and how these have shaped them, the academic disciplines they study, and their society in general; and
  • To encourage students to become leaders in promoting diversity and inclusion.
