The Center for Inclusive Excellence
The Edwards College Center for Inclusive Excellence is an interdisciplinary and dynamic hub for faculty and student fellows in collaboration with the regional community to engage in exceptional and socially responsible research and teaching. Each academic year the Center's work will be organized around a topic that will generate creative production, critical research, and socially engaged projects among three elected faculty members, student research fellows, and a graduate fellow. The collaborative creative and critical work generated around the elected topic will emerge in conversation with stakeholders in the larger community.

Faculty and student fellows demonstrate a strong and sustainable commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
