The Sustainable Inclusive Excellence Action Plan is WPI's strategic approach to actualizing a culture of inclusion and belonging at WPI. This initiative spans 3 phases designed to engage our community in WPI’s mission and values, center the voices and lived experiences of marginalized and underrepresented communities, and collaborate in the development of action plans to blend DEI into the full fabric of the institution.
We believe that a community-wide focus on sustainable inclusive excellence is not only imperative to fostering an inclusive learning and work environment, but also elevating the impact a culture of belonging can have on the greater STEM community.
The following guide, pre-reading materials, and template have been developed to guide you in the creation of your division/schools' implementation plan goals.
