TCU has just introduced a fantastic initiative, adding the requirement that all students take a course on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion alongside other core courses (like 3 hour of math, 9 hours of humanities, etc.). My colleague Dawn Elliott and I are anxious to develop something for econ, perhaps adapting our Contending Perspectives in Econ class such that one gets a view of these issues from the perspectives of various schools of thought.
I was just sitting down to put something together when it struck me that I was no doubt re-inventing the wheel! I'm sure many of you have taught such courses. To that end, might I humbly request copies of syllabi (that you can send directly to [log in to unmask]
)? It would be a great help to us.
I have attached the draft requirements for this new course, but that's just FYI. No need to look at it unless you are simply curious.
