Summit Theme: The Power of Community: C.L.I.M.B. with Purpose
Tuesday, November 2, 2021
The challenges faced by our campus, nation and world have encouraged us to seek a greater purpose. The goal of the virtual 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.
