University-wide Council on Inclusiveness & Community

The UCIC is a university-wide body with broad representation committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment for all students, faculty, staff, and other stakeholders. The Council will pursue recommendations ensuring programs, policies, and practices that are just, equitable, and ingrained in the fabric of the University.

The UCIC is dedicated to promoting inclusiveness and excellence across all units, curricular and co-curricular, for the purpose of moving beyond realizing numerical diversity in order to advance achievement, respect, regard, and involvement for all in the workings of the university

What we are about:

  • respect for one another’s differences,
  • being proactive leaders who set a tone for the University, and
  • honoring due process, but always looking forward. 

What we are not about:

  • destroying the values that got us here,
  • tearing us or others down,
  • looking backward, or
  • using counterproductive processes that achieve counterproductive results.
