Inclusive Excellence Summer Assembly

The Inclusive Excellence Summer Assembly is a two-day convening designed to affirm the role of community members as collective stewards of institutional change and development. The annual assembly is designed to include traditional discussions, such as panels, roundtables and workshops and provide un-conferencing sessions around tool building and resource sharing.

Join us at the 2023 IESA

This year's Inclusive Excellence Summer Assembly will take place from May 16 - 17, 2023 and focus on exploring issues of agency. Faculty, staff, educators and community members are invited to provide tools and share resources as they engage in meaningful dialogue surrounding issues of agency and creating learning opportunities for everyone.


Exploring issues of agency

Agency can be defined as the capacity of individuals to have the power and resources to fulfill their potential. With a sense of agency, all members of our community can express their authentic selves and feel completely welcome, secure and supported to teach and learn.

Attendees will seek answers to complex and critical questions:

  • How does your service to your community affect the possibility of agency?

  • How are learning and teaching affected by this sense of agency?

At the end of the assembly, attendees will unlock access to an "agency toolbox" that includes strategies and tips for creating agency among all members of your learning community.
