Abstract: Over the past year, training to better understand diversity in the classroom has risen to the forefront of the minds of administrators and faculty. The purpose of this teaching tip is to provide a benefit to academics by using short, student-reported issues about racial concerns within case story vignettes that focus on microaggressions. These scenarios are applied in an information systems classroom setting, but the cases could be helpful to faculty members, department chairs, and students. The teaching tip is divided into seven vignettes featuring the same popular faculty member. The teaching tip is designed as an active-learning training resource with student feedback on the vignettes provided as support of effectiveness. The vignettes are appropriate for many categories of people involved in an academic setting.

Keywords: Diversity, Case study, Faculty-student relationships
