Student Life and Inclusive Excellence
Student Life embraces the “Inclusive Excellence” framework offered by the Association of American Colleges and Universities 2005 publication, Toward a Model of Inclusive Excellence and Change in Postsecondary Institutions.
What is Inclusive Excellence?
- A focus on student intellectual and social development
- Purposeful development and utilization of organizational resources to enhance student learning
- Attention to the cultural differences learners bring to the educational experience
- A welcoming community that engages all of its diversity in the service of student and organizational learning
Our Inclusive Excellence Agenda:
We envision a University of Michigan that puts inclusive excellence at the center of its educational mission. We strive for a healthy campus climate where students, throughout their time at Michigan, are internationally engaged in ways that prepare them to be successful in a global society. Upon graduating, students should have developed the capacities to:
- Recognize how experiences, values and perspectives are influenced by identity
- Understand the impact of culture and identity on the individual, a community and society
- Acquire the tools and confidence to build inclusive and diverse communities
- Co-create open and inclusive communities by promoting respect and dignity of others
