Northeast State Community College - We're here to get you there

Office of Inclusive Excellence

Inclusive Excellence

In 2005 the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) introduced Inclusive Excellence as a methodology for helping colleges address inclusion.

By embracing Inclusive Excellence, Northeast State promotes institutional culture and belonging throughout the College:

  • Student access and success
  • Education and scholarship
  • Institutional vitality and viability, and
  • Organizational culture and climate.

The Office of Inclusive Excellence is committed to work cooperatively with campus and community groups to encourage academic excellence, to strengthen leadership skills, and to enrich cultural awareness. Northeast State is also committed to developing a climate in which every person feels valued, appreciated, and accepted.

Multicultural Center

The Multicultural Center seeks to promote Northeast State Community College's commitment to belonging and overall inclusive excellence practices by broadening multicultural awareness and sensitivity, leadership, and encourages cross-cultural collaborative relationships through recruitment, engagement, and success.
