Guiding Principle

The guiding principle of the Chancellor's Cultural Diversity Council is driven by the Inclusive Excellence Framework. The Inclusive Excellence Framework infuses diversity efforts into the core of institutional functioning to realize the educational benefits of diversity. Adapting the Inclusive Excellence model reflects the understanding that diversity and inclusion are catalysts for institutional and educational excellence, are to be invited and integrated into the very core of the educational enterprise, and are not isolated initiatives.
