In 2018, building on three years’ worth of work on the inclusive excellence initiative, Vice Chancellor Bob Boswell convened a committee charged with authoring a continuously renewing blueprint of actions designed to promote diversity, improve equity for all underserved people in the campus community, and support making excellence inclusive at all levels. 

This committee of students, faculty and staff, co-chaired by Daryl Maeda and Merna Jacobsen, and coordinated by project manager Alaina Beaver, engaged in many months of diligent work and submitted their draft of the IDEA Plan to Bob Boswell, and the rest of the campus community, on Nov. 9th, 2018. 

Text of the plan:

The entire CU Boulder campus community is invited to engage with the text of the Inclusion, Diversity and Excellence in Academic (IDEA) Plan and provide feedback over the course of the next 30-day review period, both at one of the many open town hall sessions and via our online form.
