Creating an Inclusive Environment

Creating an inclusive environment for CSU Graduate Students

Featuring Dr. Nadya Fouad

In the Spring of 2014, Dr. Nadya Fouad served as a consultant for the Graduate School in an effort to seek input for our strategic plan for the continued support of a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students.  The goal of her two day visit on campus was to seek input from graduate students, faculty, staff, and administrators. She met with over 80 people to learn more about strengths, concerns, and recommendations for creating an inclusive climate for graduate training at Colorado State University.

Dr. Fouad, an internationally recognized expert returned to campus in the fall of 2014 and presented a seminar  called “Creating an Inclusive Environment.” She discussed best practices of how to work with under represented students and/or students coming from different cultural backgrounds. Dr. Fouad is a Distinguished Professor and Department Chair of the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.
