It was a pleasure to work with Dr. Alane Shanks on the planning and delivery of a symposium on Inclusive Excellence on College Campuses. Dr. Shanks, with another colleague, introduced a large group of college leaders to a rubric for the institutionalization of diversity, equity and inclusion in Higher Education and how a self-assessment might be implemented on their campuses. Dr. Shanks’ organization and facilitation skills were very impressive. She gave everyone time to speak and allowed conversations to take their course, but also managed to stay on time and on task. By the end of the Symposium, each and every participant expressed a willingness to take on the tasks of completing the rubric when they returned to their campus.
