Inclusive Excellence at Cal State LA
With a $1 million grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) the campus HHMI Leadership Team comprised of faculty from across various colleges is working in collaboration with the AAC&U Inclusive Excellence Commission and the Center for Urban Education to create and develop a culture that supports our Strategic Priority Area of becoming a Welcoming and Inclusive Campus.
The leadership team is currently focusing on three primary areas:
- Equity Mindedness and Inclusive Pedagogy via faculty professional development activities with a focus on race and ethnicity – A collaboration with USC's Center for Urban Education and our own Center for Effective Teaching and Learning (CETL)
- Sci-CAFÉ: A web-based portal and App that will be a resource hub and community of practice tool for all students and faculty.
- Institutional Change: Review of policies and procedures that inadvertently serve as barriers to the success of students of minoritized populations.
