Inclusive Excellence survey to determine Castleton’s community values

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.
