Making excellence inclusive is a call to action for educators who believe that high-quality, practical liberal education should be the standard of excellence for all students. It is a framework for educators to resist and reverse historical standards of inclusion and excellence. The intended outcome is that colleges and universities integrate diversity, inclusion, equity, and educational quality efforts into their missions and operations on an institutional level, leading to excellence in learning for all students.
The action of making excellence inclusive requires that we uncover inequities in student success, identify effective educational practices, and build such practices organically for sustained institutional change. This process is demonstrated through many of the examples collected here.
