This proposal aims to promote student success by encouraging authentic teaching and learning partnerships between students and faculty members across academic disciplines. We aim to transform teaching practices in direct response to the experiences, knowledge, and insights of our student population. Most importantly, we aim to transform students’ sense of belonging, resilience, and educational growth. By collaborating with underrepresented and underserved students, the program aims to foster student resilience and build inclusive pedagogies across the university. Students will serve as paid pedagogical consultants to faculty members across academic disciplines under the Center for Teaching Excellence.
