What is the Center for Academic & Faculty Excellence (CAFE)?

The Center for Academic & Faculty Excellence (CAFE) is a space, a time, and an intention and purpose to nurture and develop inclusive excellence. At the CAFE the members of the academic community:

  1. learn best practices on how to develop our inclusive excellence further
  2. develop a mindset of academic and faculty excellence
  3. connect with similar-minded people to experience belonging
  4. practice inclusion and equity-oriented approaches to spread community belonging

Inclusive excellence is recognizing that an institution’s success depends on how well it values, engages, and includes​ the rich diversity of its community: students, staff, faculty, administrators, and alumni.
