Inclusive Excellence Liaisons

Academic Affairs and the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning for Student Success are committed to Inclusive Excellence and recognize that inclusion and excellence are one and the same. Inclusive Excellence is an academically rigorous process and outcome that promotes critical thinking about knowledge, seeks to understand and address historical and present-day inequities, and creates equitable classroom environments. Inclusive Excellence does not position diversity as simply the presence of difference but instead treats diversity as the intentional inclusion of the cultures, worldviews, gifts, talents, history and traditions of all people and places.
