Black Thriving Initiative

Inclusive Excellence Term Chairs

The Inclusive Excellence Term Chairs is part of the UCI Black Thriving Initiative with aims to leverage the research and creative capacity of the campus in order to deepen understanding about and responses to a designated national imperative.

Each selected awardee will receive $30,000 annually for three years to support research, teaching, and service activities that advance the program theme. These individuals also submit annual Use Reports to the Office of Inclusive Excellence, deliver a public lecture in the program series, participate in a campus hosted conference.  These awardees also consult with the Office of Inclusive Excellence on the Inclusive Excellence Action Plan to develop and enact programmatic activities consistent with the requirements of the Inclusive Excellence Term Chairs Program.

Congratulations to the inaugural cohort of Inclusive Excellence Term Chairs!
