The Provost’s Award for Diversity in the Curriculum recognizes a faculty member’s efforts to integrate diversity and inclusion concepts into courses and curricula at the University of Pittsburgh. Up to five award recipients may be chosen annually. Each award consists of a $2,000 cash prize and a recognition plaque.

Any faculty member who has participated in diversity initiatives at the University can apply for this award. Faculty must have taught the modified course or revised curricula and assessed the impact of those modifications within the last three years. These modifications may include such approaches as employing more inclusive and interactive teaching methods, instituting classroom changes to expand students’ cultural awareness and cross-cultural development, communicating equity-minded practices throughout a discipline or creating more welcoming and inclusive learning environments. Previous recipients are not eligible.

Learn more and apply before the deadline on Friday, Oct. 22 (deadline has been extended). Applications received after the due date will be considered for the following year.
