The Power of Community: C.L.I.M.B. with Purpose
Fall 2021 Diversity and Inclusion Summit
Students, staff, faculty and community members, register now for the fall 2021 summit on Nov. 2!
The challenges faced by our campus, nation and world have encouraged us to seek a greater purpose. The theme of this semester’s virtual Diversity and Inclusion Summit on Nov. 2 is “The Power of Community: C.L.I.M.B. with Purpose.”
The goal of the summit is to continue to provide a foundation to help us build community resilience and to help us move forward together toward a more equitable environment using a growth mindset. We invite you to explore how self-reflection plays a vital role in cultivating inclusive excellence for students, staff and faculty while tapping into both your head and your heart.
C.L.I.M.B. refers to the goals and actions described in the CU Boulder Inclusion, Diversity and Excellence in Academics (IDEA) Plan, the campus’s blueprint for diversity, equity and inclusive excellence.
The summit will include a variety of interactive Zoom sessions where students, staff and faculty will discuss how together we can transform CU Boulder’s culture. Register at the links below.

Since 1985, our office has sponsored diversity and inclusion summits to continue our ongoing education. They are offered twice a year, during fall and spring semesters.
