Inclusive Excellence

Inclusive Excellence is a model designed to integrate diversity, equity and inclusion throughout an organization. It centers diversity efforts into the core of our infrastructure. Applying Inclusive Excellence goals, actions and metrics lead to infusing diversity into our college culture. Inclusive Excellence means an organization has adopted means for the consistent, clear, and collaborative integration of diversity, equity, and inclusion into the pursuit of excellence.
