Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Inclusive Excellence is a strategic pillar and a core value at Georgia Southern University. We recognize that our success as an institution of higher learning depends on our ability to embrace, value, and appreciate the diversity of students, staff, faculty, administrators, and alumni across our campuses. 

Through a collaborative process involving all of these constituent groups, we are doing the work of embedding diversity and inclusiveness throughout University life. A commitment to Inclusive Excellence will create an engaged, welcoming campus climate that values diversity, supports student-leaders and rewards excellence at every level.

A centerpiece of our strategic plan, Inclusive Excellence is also focused on preparing students to succeed in a multicultural economy. According to the American Management Association, a person’s Cultural Intelligence Quotient, which enables college graduates to excel in a diverse workplace, is the #1 predictor of success in today’s global economy.
