We see Excelsior College as a place where all students, faculty and staff are valued. We celebrate the many commonalities we share as well as the variety of cultural and other experiences and resources which sustains our competitive advantage and enhances our College Community. We see Excelsior College as a place where contrasting viewpoints represent learning opportunities and our commitment to cooperation and inclusion is the means to achieving the common good.
At Excelsior College, positive outcomes are the result of diverse individuals working in cooperation with one another as responsible citizens in building a learning community. We acknowledge that diversity involves recognition and respect of the richness of ethnic and cultural traditions, and different perspectives related to gender, age, disability, sexual orientation religion, family status, employee tenure and more. We also recognize that inclusion is about our ability as an organization to leverage these differences and maximize individual contributions in a way that enhances organizational effectiveness.
Excelsior College will integrate the concepts of diversity and inclusion into all aspects the College; through the recruitment and retention of students, faculty, and staff who reflect the society in which we live; through curriculum development and academic advising; through the delivery of services; through the encouragement of volunteerism among our faculty, staff, and alumni; through participation in educational programs, cultural events, celebrations, and other awareness activities. Excelsior College will develop practices and policies that promote the vision of diversity and inclusion in the work place.
