The Center for Inclusive Excellence (CIE) cultivates an inclusive campus climate through collaboration, support, targeted programming and the facilitation of cross-cultural resources. The CIE staff designs and develops academic and social programming and services that will help historically underrepresented, low income, and racially diverse students toward college completion. The CIE provides a welcoming physical space for racially diverse faculty, staff and students to gather and create opportunities for the community to learn about different cultures in this space. Also, the CIE will assist with implementing a model of inclusive excellence campus wide according to and in alignment with the mission of the Division of Diversity, Inclusion & Community Engagement.
