Workshops on DEI in Pedagogy and Course Content
These are workshops, hosted by SPIA, for any and all faculty seeking to promote diverse authorship, ideas, and other content in course materials and in developing intentional approaches to inclusive pedagogy. SPIA partners with invited experts (e.g., from the UGA Office of Institutional Diversity) to work on inclusive pedagogical practices and discuss DEI in our areas of expertise.

Human Rights Research
Human rights enable people to live lives of dignity and “to fully develop and use our human qualities, our intelligence, our talents, and our conscience and to satisfy our spiritual and other needs” (United Nations, 1987). SPIA’s Department of International Affairs, a leader in the area of human rights scholarship, offers multiple opportunities for students to engage directly in the research and on the analysis of human rights performance across geographical contexts.
SPIA Course Design/Redesign Grants
Offered by the Office of the Dean, these grants support the re-design of current courses or development of new courses that incorporate significant course content dealing with diversity, equity, and inclusion themes, and/or that significantly engage students using inclusive pedagogical strategies.
