In an ever-changing world, building a culture of sustainable Inclusive Excellence calls for institutional introspection. To foster reflection about what diversity and inclusion mean today, national leaders in higher education, non-profit organizations and corporations will share their best practices and facilitate discussion. Presenters will also touch on topics ranging from implementation of Inclusive Excellence policies and councils to making the case for building a culture of Inclusive Excellence in the workplace.

Organized by Cleveland State University's (CSU) Office of Inclusion and Multicultural Engagement – nationally recognized as an innovator in Inclusive Excellence – the conference will be held at CSU’s campus in the heart of Downtown Cleveland. CSU has been awarded the “Insight Into Diversity” Higher Education Excellence in Diversity (HEED) award in the past two years.

At Cleveland State University, Inclusive Excellence is at the forefront of our mission to provide students with comprehensive Engaged Learning opportunities. CSU defines Inclusive Excellence as, “a commitment to creating a campus environment that not only recognizes, appreciates, and values the talents, abilities, experiences, and perspectives of every member of the CSU community, but also uses those characteristics to achieve educational and organizational objectives while producing a robust, creative environment."

We hope you’ll join us for this meaningful discussion about the importance and future of Inclusive Excellence.
