Office of Inclusive Excellence

Welcome to the CEHD Office of Inclusive Excellence

CEHD’s Office of Inclusive Excellence seeks to invoke the core value of social justice in a more purposeful way.

OIE was created in response to the question of how we intend to achieve goals outlined in the inclusive excellence plan developed by members of the Equity Advisory Team, with support from other committees and the college at large.

Vision and Mission


The vision of the Office of Inclusive Excellence (OIE) is to advance the College in research, teaching, and service, through inclusive excellence practices, while creating an affirming, safe, and welcoming space for all.


Embodying a spirit of inclusive excellence, our office is committed to cultivating a collaborative approach to creating an environment where everyone feels valued, celebrated, and empowered. We recognize that true progress comes from working collectively to address the diverse needs of faculty, staff, and students, with intersecting identities.

Goals of OIE

  1. To support the recruitment of a student population comprised of intersecting identities in CEHD, through participation in admission and marketing programs; and to contribute to retention efforts through programming and resources.
  2. To assist with and promote faculty and staff recruitment efforts that highlight inclusive excellence practices and expand beyond our traditional norms; and to retain them through various modes of support.
  3. To facilitate educational opportunities for faculty and staff on the ways in which they can continue to promote inclusive excellence in their work in CEHD.
  4. To advocate for faculty, staff, and students, as needed.
