Inclusive Excellence Term Chairs: Inaugural Theme Black Thriving

The Inclusive Excellence Term Chair program will focus on a national imperative and/or global challenge. It provides an opportunity for the campus to recognize distinguished research, teaching and service of incumbent faculty in contributing to the selected theme. The inaugural theme for 2020-2021 to 2023-2024 will be BlackThriving. In fall 2020, the Office of Inclusive Excellence will appoint five chairs. Each incumbent will receive a $30,000 research allocation each year for the three year term, serve on the advisory board of the Black Thriving Institute, and deliver one public lecture during their tenure. Selected by a campuswide committee, each school may nominate one or two qualifying faculty for centrally funded chairs.
