DCIE Mission Statement

“The President's Council on Inclusion and Excellence serves to enhance the City College of New York’s ability to incorporate the full diversity of backgrounds, traditions, and experiences of faculty, staff, and students in realizing the goal of an inclusive community that values excellence in scholarship, creative arts, teaching and learning, and student development. To accomplish this, the Council analyzes current trends and concerns related to inclusion in all areas of the College and, based on these analyses, provides need-based recommendations to the President that promote inclusive excellence. These recommendations focus on encouraging inclusiveness in hiring; fairness in faculty retention, tenure, and promotion; and provision of equal opportunity for all faculty and staff to rise, on their merits, to leadership positions. The council also makes recommendations that promote an understanding of how inclusion and participation of the diverse groups within the College community fosters excellence. It further works to encourage a culturally rich and cohesive environment that nourishes student retention and academic success.”
