Inclusive Excellence Plan
University Strategic Plan Priority #2: Inclusive Excellence
The University Strategic Planning Committee and the President’s Committee on Equity and Inclusion have been working on a campus inclusive excellence plan (“The University Strategic Plan Priority #2: Inclusive Excellence”). The Inclusive Excellence Plan is one of four priorities within the University Strategic Plan. This plan is informed by findings from the Diversity Mapping Project and the Campus Climate Study. The plan has four strategies: 1) Anticipate and respond to the needs of a diverse university community; 2) Support the development and professional growth of a diverse faculty, staff, and administration; 3) Strengthen outreach, recruitment, and retention of diverse faculty, staff, and administrators; and 4) Ensure graduates can engage in ethical reasoning and public action informed by historical, multicultural, global, ecological, and equity perspectives.
Fulfilling the university strategic plan requires us to engage in specific processes that will support the plan's successful implementation. One of the strategies that will be necessary to advance Priority #2 – Inclusive Excellence is the development and implementation of inclusive excellence plans. Priority #2 calls for the fulfillment of inclusive excellence plans at the division, college, and department/unit levels. The completion and implementation of inclusive excellence plans across the university will help us in our efforts to become more equitable and inclusive. That goal is crucial for our efforts through the strategic plan, and it is consistent with the university's overall mission.
To facilitate the completion of inclusive excellence plans across the university, selected areas within each division will participate in a Fall ‘21 semester group (Cohort 1) and Spring ‘22 semester group (Cohort 2). The intent is for the selected areas (units, departments, and colleges) to complete an actual plan this academic year.
The Office of Inclusive Excellence and Sustainability (OIES) and the President's Committee on Equity and Inclusion (PCEI) will provide guidance and support in completing the plans; they will be meeting regularly with each cohort to answer any questions regarding the process. The process will also include timelines for the completion and submission of the plans.
