Welcome to the CIE...
The Center for Inclusive Excellence

#Intersectionality - #Identity - #Social Justice - #Belonging - #Antiracism

The Center for Inclusive Excellence (aka: The Center/CIE) is a welcoming and supportive place that accepts and appreciates individuals from all walks of life. We invite you to support us in our efforts by...

  • joining a student organization whose mission is aligned with the principles of social justice,
  • attending campus events that promote diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice work, 
  • meeting with staff in The Center to develop an individual student success plan, and more importantly,
  • meet and become acquainted with someone who you believe is unlike yourself.

PROGRAMS & INITIATIVES Our goal is to connect you with educational programming, campus events/activities, and resources, that will help you dig deeper into the terms: culture, diversity, equity, inclusion, social justice, identity, and intersectionality. (A few of our endeavors are listed below)

  • First Forward Network (for first generation Gusties)
  • GAIN Summer Institute 
  • Women of Color Summit
  • Adoptee Support Resources
  • Critical Dialogue Events
  • Lyrical Cafe Events

THE PHYSICAL SPACE: We invite you to visit the new and renovated Center (formerly the DIVE)! Our goal is to make this a space where "you can be who you are, and where you are appreciated for who you are."

The Center for Inclusive Excellence may be our new name, but our motto is still the same: "ALL MEANS ALL".
