Inclusive Excellence Council

The Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor's Inclusive Excellence (IE) Council was formed to integrate the ideals of diversity, inclusion, and equity into all levels of the University concerned with academic affairs. The results of the Campus Climate Survey and the Equity Scorecard will serve as guides for the committee in establishing action plans to promote these ideals. In keeping with UW System's working definition of diversity, the IE Council defines diversity broadly as both "individual differences" and "group/social differences" such as "race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, country of origin, and ability as well as cultural, political, religious, or other affiliations." One of the goals of the IE Council will be to promote the exploration of the impact of differences on the learning process. These differences include the group/social differences named above; the status of students such as their socio-economic, marital, educational, employment, and/or family status; and their position as returning veterans, first-generation students, non-traditional students, transfer students, ESL students, and/or international students. The IE Council brings together administrators, classified staff, academic staff, faculty, and students who have demonstrated leadership in and promotion of an improved campus climate around diversity. As it is defined in this charge, demonstrated leadership references an established record of being a change agent on issues of diversity on campus. The charge of the IE Council is to provide leadership, education, and advocacy that will cultivate an equitable, inclusive, diverse, and supportive climate for people traditionally marginalized from and within the campus community.
