This paper acts as a toolbox for civil engineering educators trying to increase diversity and inclusion lessons in their classrooms. The tools presented in this paper ensure that the rigorous technical components of civil engineering education are maintained. Specifically, this paper presents a series of case studies that highlight diversity and inclusion while simultaneously providing traditional civil engineering course content. This paper also suggests several teaching interventions (both general and case specific) and directly maps out the interventions to ABET learning outcomes. A Transportation Engineering course was used as a pilot initiative by implementing the respective case study. The learning outcomes of the pilot initiative were assessed both with regard to diversity and inclusion lessons and ABET learning outcomes. Civil engineering educators can review the findings of this paper to determine which case study and/or teaching intervention best supports their course or program needs.
