On May 19, 2015, Campus Compact for New Hampshire and NERCHE hosted a New Hampshire Inclusive Excellence Symposium at the NH Higher Education Assistance Foundation in Concord, NH.
The purpose of the symposium was for representatives from New Hamphire colleges and universities to learn about Project Inclusion: Institutionalization of Inclusive Excellence and Student Success in New Hampshire’s Colleges and Universities, an initiative funded by the Lloyd G. Balfour Foundation, Bank of America, N.A., Trustee, and in partnership with the New Hampshire Inclusive Excellence Advisory Board.
The specific goals of the symposium were to:
- Review the NERCHE Self-Assessment Rubric for the Institutionalization of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Higher Education and its potential use on individual campuses;
- Understand the criteria for becoming a sub-grant recipient and what it means to be a pilot site; and,
- Identify next steps for pilot sites and collective action across the state to expand campus practices supporting diversity and inclusion.
