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.
