FCTL Diversity Statement –

The Gertrude C. Ford Center for Teaching and Learning (FCTL) highly values faculty from diverse backgrounds and incorporates these perspectives into all aspects of our activities. We view faculty’s diversity as a resource, strength, and benefit to Delta State University and its partners.

The FCTL Team is mindful to present materials and activities that are respectful of diversity, gender, sexuality, disability, age, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, race, and culture. The suggestions, recommendations, and initiatives of all DSU faculty are encouraged and appreciated. We encourage all parties to notify the FCTL team of ways to improve the effectiveness of this center for you personally or for other faculty and faculty groups.
