The Inclusion and Equity Institute (IEI) for Lakers creates the conditions for learning and action to recognize and dismantle systems of oppression and to understand the ways our intersecting identities inform our worldview, relationships, leadership and organizations.
This aim supports the strategic direction of the University through Reach Higher 2025.
Our process involves walking and working alongside others to cultivate rich learning environments and meaningful outcomes, grounded in agency and action. We welcome the chance to work with individuals, department and divisions on furthering inclusion and equity knowledge and skills to deepen commitments.
Our facilitators are a diverse group of academics, practitioners, community leaders and advocates who are passionate and committed to engaging in ways that motivate social justice transformation.
Our commitments to both campus and community are core to GVSU's mission and strategic priorities.
