Inclusive Excellence Scholar Residency

Inclusive Excellence Scholar Residency

Each academic year, The Office of Diversity and Inclusion welcomes a distinguished guest to campus for a multi-day series of events. The Inclusive Excellence Scholar Residency (IESR) assists the University of Dayton community to achieve a more robust integrated approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion that

  • builds on existing efforts across campus
  • operates in a strategic, evidenced-based and data-driven manner
  • underscores the importance of comprehensive outcomes assessments and strong accountability measures.

The overarching topic of each IESR lays a thematic foundation that shapes and informs diversity, equity and inclusion professional development and education opportunities for faculty, staff, and administrators for the academic year.
