ABOUT DIVERSITY AT MIZZOU
Inclusive Excellence Awards
Inclusive excellence refers to the fact that diversity is more than demographics; and that diversity is integral to the university’s mission of “providing all Missourians with the benefits of a world-class research university through better teaching, research, public service and economic development.” Inclusive Excellence is reflected in the campus climate, curriculum, intellectual discourse, scholarly products, and recruitment and retention efforts.
The Mizzou Inclusive Excellence Award is given to individuals or groups who, as part of the Mizzou community, have made exemplary contributions within the past two years to any area of diversity, including but not limited to issues of gender, racial-ethnic background, language, religious belief, sexual orientation, abilities and disabilities, national and geographical origin and economic strata.
