UC Irvine Academy for Inclusive Excellence: Advancing Faculty and Graduate Student Diversity

The theme of the day-long academy is “Growth that Makes a Difference”. The featured presenter will be Dr. Beth Mitchneck, a Professor of Geography at Arizona University. Dr. Mitchneck served as the Director of the National Science Foundation ADVANCE Program from 2012 to 2015. In her interactive keynote address, Dr. Mitchneck will draw upon her recent Science article entitled, “A recipe for change: Creating a more inclusive academy: Using data, selecting leaders and changing rules”.

The academy program is built around UCI’s signature peer-to-peer model of faculty engagement for inclusive excellence across all fields and disciplines. The morning and afternoon breakout sessions are organized around the specific roles of ADVANCE Equity Advisors and the DECADE Graduate Program Mentors. Topics include faculty recruitment and retention, as well as graduate student admissions and degree completion. In equipping faculty to lead through inclusive excellence, these sessions will be informed by critical components of institutional accountability, namely goals, metrics and strategies.
