USP Instructor Guide
This page is designed to assist USP instructors with suggestions of how they can utilize the Women's Center to broaden their students' experiences through our programming whilst achieving the goal of investigating the USP signature questions.
This page is organized to assist USP instructors with an easy guide of how Women's Center events relate to Quest courses. At the top of the page, we have a basic listing of which events relate to which signature questions. You may also utilize this pdf (forthcoming) with event information and how it corresponds to the signature question, learning outcomes for the program, and possible discussion questions that you can use with your class after they've attended a Women's Center event. For events where we are not the speakers, we are only able to provide a guide for how the Women's Center staff believes the event will relate to Signature Questions.
