Inclusive Excellence Committee

Purpose or Function: The Inclusive Excellence Committee will uphold and promote the mission and goals of the University, specifically Momentum 2015.  It will be responsible for suggesting and coordinating University-wide events.  It will strive to create an inclusive and welcoming University Community for students, faculty and staff.  Key values to be examined are engagement, exploration, our differences and similarities, and creating a climate of inclusion, empowerment, equity, access, shared responsibility, accountability and social justice for all.

The Committee will produce a final report to the President at the end of the year, highlighting the achievements and recommendations. It will be responsible for reviewing, analyzing and recommending issues, practices, and initiatives related to diversity.  This committee provides students, faculty and staff with an accessible forum for understanding, developing, and analyzing both concerns and interests related to diversity. Diversity includes both the primary dimensions (e.g., race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation) and secondary dimensions (e.g., social class, religion, marital status).
