Inclusive Excellence

Inclusive Excellence involves grounding the academic experience of students and faculty in intellectual rigor that presupposes the importance and complexity of diversity and contributes to the development of the sophisticated intercultural skills necessary to work in a diverse society and interconnected world. Inclusive Excellence is a commitment to creating a campus environment that not only recognizes and appreciates the talents, skills, and perspectives of every staff member, faculty member, and administrator, but also uses those skills to achieve educational and organizational objectives while producing a robust, creative environment. Inclusive excellence is comprehensive educational reform based on research and theory as well as best practices designed to yield better outcomes for students while fulfilling the University mission.
