The Office of Inclusive Excellence Presents:

Institute for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

September 9, 2021

The Institute for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, is entering its 15th year as an enduring venue for institutional transformation. The Institute brings together staff and faculty leaders from UCI, the University of California, and universities and colleges from the greater southern California region.

Our forum provides a valuable opportunity to refine goals, strategies, and metrics in ways that will improve coordination, communication and collaboration for student, staff, and faculty success while mobilizing to advance inclusive excellence priorities at UCI.

The Institute for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion is scheduled in two virtual meeting blocks: AM (10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.) and PM (12:45 p.m.-2:00 p.m.).  The event will feature a skills session, keynote, and information on sustaining thriving, community, and wellness at UCI.
