AWARENESS TO ACTION: BUILDING A CULTURE OF INCLUSIVE EXCELLENCE

Through expanded campus investments in diversity and the implementation of the Board-approved Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Policy, SUNY is poised to become the most inclusive system of public higher education in the country. By weaving diversity into the fabric of University life, both System Administration and individual campuses recognize the need to build strategic diversity plans. These plans will help SUNY move forward: from an awareness of what inclusive excellence signifies to action plans that will transform their diversity goals into measurable actions. Please join our collective effort to help bring about this transformation by sharing your expertise, best practices and individual experiences at our diversity conference. Leading the way to inclusion through this forum will sustain the momentum created by our system-wide Diversity Task Force and the resulting Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Policy. We hope you will be an active participant in this conversation.
