Our current priorities

Keeping our advocacy lens at the forefront, the following initiatives are key priorities for the Office of Inclusive Excellence:

CSU’s Inclusive Excellence Employee Climate Survey

The Vice President’s Office for Inclusive Excellence has a continuing goal to promote further and develop an inclusive campus climate designed to welcome, encourage, and embrace differences, so all community members are recognized, valued, and affirmed.  The Office for Inclusive Excellence conducts an Employee Climate Survey every two years.

Equity and Inclusion Network (EIN)

The Equity and Inclusion Network (EIN) is a university-wide DEI committee dedicated to sharing resources, researching promising practices, and recommending university-wide changes and initiatives to advance equity at CSU. EIN has representation from all divisions and colleges across the university. Additionally, the Academic Equity and Inclusion Network (AEIN) is a subcommittee of the larger EIN, which focuses on advancing equity in the colleges and leveraging current resources.
