Inclusive Excellence Goal. The overarching aspects of the College’s Inclusive Excellence plan include recruitment and retention of faculty, staff and students into an inclusive environment that engages diversity and values equity.
Over the next 3 years, the College leadership will continue to recruit and retain faculty and staff whose identities more closely align with the characteristics of our student body. We will ensure that faculty and staff responsible for critical decisions in hiring and admissions processes are well-versed in best practices related to diversity, equity and inclusion, and develop procedures and processes to ensure equity in our hiring, promotion, and student admissions practices.
We will examine our curriculum to identify opportunities to better integrate themes of equity and engage our diverse student perspectives. Finally, we will foster opportunities for growth in diversity-related knowledge, skills, and values through experiential learning, trainings, self-assessment and reflection among faculty, staff, and students.
