Inclusive Excellence Team
The Inclusive Excellence Team (IET) is a collaborative group consisting of students, faculty, and staff volunteers from across campus striving towards a more welcoming and respectful environment for the University of Lynchburg. The IET helps to oversee the Diversity Strategic Plan, an additional document utilized in conjunction with Objective 1.4 of Vision 2020+.
The four groups involved in the IET are the Student Diversity Council, the Faculty Committee on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the Staff for an Inclusive Community, and the Staff Advisory Committee. Each of these groups work both independently and collaboratively to ensure the University of Lynchburg is living up to its values of community, diversity, and integrity. Each group consists of campus community members:
- The Student Diversity Council (SDC) representatives are both graduate and undergraduate students who represent various aspects of the diversity found on the campus of the University of Lynchburg.
- The Faculty Committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (FCDEI) representatives are faculty members who have a heart for topics of inclusion including the recruitment and retention of underrepresented faculty, ensuring an inclusive curriculum, and mentoring and advising.
- The Staff for an Inclusive Community (SIC) representatives are staff members who work to promote diverse training and development opportunities for staff, hiring and HR practices, and marketing and advocacy.
- The mission of the Staff Advisory Committee (SAC) is to promote a positive working and learning environment for the University’s staff by being an advocate on their behalf providing leadership, guidance, and motivation to the ever-changing workplace. The Committee manages funds necessary to provide supplemental funding for individual and professional training not fully funded by a staff member’s department, as well as funds for networking and social engagement opportunities.”
For more information, or to join the IET, please contact Dr. Robert Canida, II firstname.lastname@example.org.
