This year, the 2023 Inclusive Excellence Symposium explored what it means to be in community with the University of Vermont's Our Common Ground values with speakers Loretta Ross, Rabia Chaudry, D'Lo, and Maimouna Youssef with both in-person and online offerings.

An evolution of UVM’s Blackboard Jungle, the Inclusive Excellence Symposium supports faculty, staff, students, and community members seeking to develop skills, knowledge, and a deeper understanding of diversity that supports excellence in teaching, service, and research. The symposium sessions are dedicated to creating spaces where all members of our community can participate in authentic dialogue, valued reflection, and expanded learning to promote inclusive excellence for all.
