ADVANCE Institute for Equity and Diversity

Harnessing Inclusive Excellence

September 16, 2015 - 1030 Humanities Gateway

Now in its ninth year, the institute is an enduring venue for institutional transformation; one that brings together faculty leaders from UCI, the University of California, and university and college representatives from the greater southern California region.

The theme for the 2015 institute is “Harnessing Inclusive Excellence”. This theme will animate our day-long program, including featured presenters and dedicated sessions on advancing inclusive excellence in faculty recruitment, teaching and learning, and mentoring.
