UC Santa Barbara is a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI). We are privileged to work with students and faculty members who bring diverse cultures, identities, and experiences to their learning experiences. CITRAL helps disseminate evidence-based practices to improve teaching and learning, provides workshops and opportunities to develop inclusive teaching practices, and provides support and leadership programs for underrepresented faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students. CITRAL workshops invite participants to think about the roles that they play as facilitators of student learning in individual courses. They’ll also engage us to think beyond those courses and consider larger issues of systems and structures, policies, and practices across the institution.
