We recognize the vital role Inclusion Advocates fulfill in creating a campus environment that values differences across many dimensions of diversity. We value the contributions of the Inclusion Advocates who have pioneered this effort and laid the foundation for inclusion. With important feedback from faculty and staff across the university, the Inclusion Advocate Program has been revised. We invite you to participate in our new Inclusion Advocate Program.
The substantive changes to the program include: a formal registration process, an enhanced orientation, pre-requisite training, on-going support, required biannual meetings, recognition for service, and an annual evaluation process. In addition, the new program has been designed to offer two levels of participation: an Inclusion Advocate, who serves on candidate search committees with specific responsibilities, and an Inclusion Champion, who makes a professional commitment to broadly support an inclusive hiring and retention process.
