Castleton’s Council on Inclusive Excellence, made up of administrators, faculty, students and staff, is planning an event dubbed “Moving Toward Inclusive Excellence at Castleton: An Interactive Forum.”
Council members are urging students to be part of a dialogue about how to ensure that all students share a common learning space at Castleton that is welcoming to everyone.
“To make inclusive excellence a reality, we invite your ideas; we value your input; and we need your active participation. Please join us in the 1787 Room on Thursday, Oct. 23, at 4 p.m.,” said Dean of Arts, Sciences and Community Engagement Ingrid Johnston-Robledo.
She, along with Debbie Singiser, who is charged with increasing international students, are also urging students and faculty to take a Campus Inclusiveness Survey.
The survey, they said, will measure the extent to which the Castleton campus community is rooted in mutual respect, equal opportunities and belonging.
It was developed by a group of students, faculty, and staff under the guidance of the President’s Council on Inclusive Excellence. The results will help us learn about what we can do as a campus to become a more inclusive and welcoming community in which to learn and work. They stressed it only takes 10 minutes to complete! You can find a link to the electronic survey in the announcements section of the Portal.
