Community and inclusion provides students the opportunity to explore their personal and social identities, develop an understanding of privilege and oppression through cross-cultural dialogues, programs, and services while also honoring, celebrating, and acknowledging the past and present historical struggles and achievements of groups from historically marginalized identities and underserved communities.
We focus on three values
- Identity Exploration
Shaping a collaborative learning environment
We develop and implement programs and provide services which shape a collaborative learning environment that integrates both curricular and co-curricular theories and practices for all students, regardless of their personal/social identities and/or experiences.
Students are actively engaged in programs and services that:
- acknowledge, celebrate, and honor the diversity of our students,
- create opportunities for dialogue across difference,
- encourage self-reflection,
- empower students to become allies who will promote an equitable and inclusive community while serving as social change agents in a diverse and global society.
Fostering an inclusive community
Community and Inclusion fosters an inclusive environment in which students from historically marginalized identities and underserved communities feel a sense of belonging by developing and enhancing collaborative programmatic initiatives which promote
- identity development
- leadership development
