Inclusive Excellence Framework
Making excellence inclusive as stated by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AA&U) is “an active process through which colleges and universities achieve excellence in learning, teaching, student development, institutional functioning, and engagement in local and global communities and requires that we uncover inequities in student success, identify effective educational practices, and build such practices organically for sustained institutional change.”
As a guiding principle, Inclusive Excellence is a collective commitment, meant to include and engage the rich diversity of students, staff, faculty, administrators, alumni and community constituents.
