About the Inclusion Assessment

The Inclusion Assessment Meetings are aimed at producing effective dialogue on diversity, inclusion and equity on campus between students, faculty/staff and administrators. 


After the meetings, we will produce an extensive proposal detailing the avenues of discussion with the various groups. We develop a detailed assessment on the strengths of the campus environment and how it can improve in areas which could inhibit institutional effectiveness. The evaluation will provide immediate and long-term "strike points" which could provide a landscape for open communication between campus entities.
