Organization Note

The mission of the Center for Inclusive Excellence is to provide leadership for positive and equitable change that creates a welcoming and supportive environment for persons historically under-served in American colleges and universities. We partner with faculty, staff, and students to design activities that infuse into college life an acceptance and deep understanding for difference that is morally and socially just.
achieve this by collaborating with curricular and co-curricular departments to create a learning environment that offers cultural, educational, and mentoring programs for students. We also partner with faculty and staff to effectively support the academic, cultural, and social adjustment of students from various multicultural backgrounds.
