Participatory Decision-making and Supportive Administrative Capacity

Staff and faculty discussion


In order to truly inspire and benefit from inclusive excellence, we must provide opportunities for all members of our campus community to participate in and to enrich decisions that affect them, shape our mission, and sustain our vision.

Bringing the voices of students, staff, faculty, alumni and other partners to bear on how we operate is key to creating the caring, supportive, healthy campus on which we want to work, study, create, and play.
