Greetings NKU Community,
Thank you for your participation and commitment to developing NKU’s 2022 Inclusive Plan: Catalyzing Institutional and Educational Excellence*. Sixty-five students, faculty and staff worked tirelessly from August 2016 through March 2017 to develop an integrated institutional Inclusive Excellence Plan. In November 2017, the Council for Postsecondary Education (CPE) approved NKU’s Plan which can be located at the bottom of this page. Paralleling these efforts, the academic colleges and administrative units developed their individual Inclusive Excellence Plans that align with the institutional plan, while offering the opportunity to highlight their respective missions and disciplines. All Plans will soon be posted on the firstname.lastname@example.org
Statement on Inclusive Excellence:
NKU’s 2022 Inclusive Excellence Plan provides the vision and the practices to make visible the University’s commitment to becoming a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community.
With great appreciation,
2022 Inclusive Excellence Plan: Catalyzing Institutional and Educational Excellence
The University’s Inclusive Excellence Plan is situated within the framework that emerged from the efforts of CPE (Council for Post-Secondary Education) to develop a new state-wide policy on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and a process for setting educational opportunity goals and determining eligibility to offer new degree programs. This new policy is “grounded on the premise that to truly prepare students for life and work in an increasingly diverse society, Kentucky higher education institutions shall develop a plan to embrace diversity and equity…commit to improving academic achievement for all students, create an inclusive campus environment, and produce culturally competent graduates for the workforce.” (Kentucky Public Postsecondary Education Policy for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. adopted by CPE: September 23, 2016 (PDF))
