The Inclusive Culture Team (ICT) at CU Boulder provides education, training, workshops, resources and direct support to faculty and staff units as they work to accomplish their diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) goals. The ICT is led by Senior Director Anthony Siracusa and Director Montez Butts.
The ICT also organizes and supports the twice annual Diversity and Inclusion Summit at CU Boulder. Additionally, the ICT organizes periodic events and initiatives that address campus needs around DEI work and serves as an on-campus resource for faculty and staff on their journey to inclusive excellence.
The ICT has more than a dozen pre-made educational modules that departments can request. The ICT is also available to discuss specific departmental concerns and can develop customized presentations and workshops that more directly address the needs of your department.
