PFRH E-NEWS Summer 2022

IDARE & Education


  • Created a list of potential educational offerings for faculty to consider – Asking about IDARE training is now a part of our annual review
  • Created a template of an IDARE statement for faculty to use in their syllabi – currently figuring out how to mass disseminate this
  • Shared IDARE updates at the school and department levels
  • Met monthly with the schoolwide IDARE committee – we created a calendar for all IDARE events, wrote a petition to urge the school to give higher raises to staff, and continue to share practices across departments that seem to be working to support IDARE principles
  • Created an IDARE rubric to be used for faculty search committees (with IDARE & DAN reps from MH)
  • Centered IDARE issues during our Faculty retreat in May
  • Mentoring diverse students via facilitated discussion led by Mahnoor from the IDARE office 
  • Education update on course review for IDARE content and IDARE statements for syllabi
  • Supporting PhD students as we diversify our cohorts (PhD Audit results and next steps)
