The HHMI Inclusive Excellence initiative challenges U.S. colleges and universities to substantially and sustainably increase campus inclusion of all students, especially those students who belong to groups underrepresented in science. The grant has charged the University of Colorado Denver with the aim of creating a learning community of college and university faculty and administrators who are engaged in the continuing process of increasing their institution’s capacity for inclusion of all students. 

CU Denver has joined a broader community of universities and colleges that have been engaged in the work of building inclusion and equity for all students in STEM. As a part of the learning community, CU Denver will exchange strategies, experiences, and approaches for ongoing assessment, evaluation, and resource development with other institutions participating in the HHMI Inclusive Excellence project.
