Inclusive Excellence Training

Inclusive Excellence means building high-quality learning opportunities by ensuring equitable access to both effective educational practices and a welcoming and enabling campus climate for all students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Achieving Inclusive Excellence requires a paradigm shift in identifying, examining, and dismantling existing mindsets/norms/regulations in higher education that serve as catalysts for marginalization, inequity, and intolerance. As part of the College of Liberal Arts’ commitment to Inclusive Excellence, it has conducted several faculty workshops on how to ensure both inclusivity and academic rigor across all aspects of campus life. Video clips from the workshops—courtesy of the college’s steering committee on Inclusive Excellence and High-Impact Teaching Practices—are featured below.
