The Office of Inclusive Excellence 


Fall 2017 Issue #3
Welcome to the 2017-18 academic year! Classes have begun and the energy and excitement of new and returning students, faculty, and staff is felt throughout campus. 
With this excitement, however, national events are weighing heavily on many members of our campus community. Violent protests espousing hate and racism, roll-backs of protections for the LGBTQ community, the rescission of the DACA program, and other affronts to social justice affect our CSUMB community.  We are experiencing an unprecedented period in our country’s history, and it is a time for us to come together to listen, to learn and to heal. 
The Office of Inclusive Excellence’s mission includes “promoting a campus environment where all students, faculty and staff feel a sense of belonging” and “are able to achieve their academic or professional goals.”  The information in this newsletter reflects the work of many individuals and offices across campus aligned with this mission. Together we can further an equitable, healthy and productive campus for every member of our community.

The Office of Inclusive Excellence is pleased to offer the Diversity Learning Series, a collection of workshops on issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion. The workshops are open to all faculty and staff. The purpose of the series is to offer content knowledge and practical skills, based largely on the results of the Diversity Mapping Project and the Campus Climate Study. The series is aligned with one of President Ochoa’s goals—“Creating a more inclusive and respectful community.”
