  1. Are the assigned reading from diverse voices and perspectives ?
  2. Are the case studies being used in class drawn from the well of stereotypes of minoritized folks ?
  3. Are the course projects framed from a place of cultural appreciation and understanding ?
  4. Are the guest speakers for the course from minoritized communities ?
  5. In what ways does the syllabus minimize stereotype threat ?
