Reflection: Inclusive Excellence
Inclusive Excellence (IE) is the recognition that a community or institution's success is dependent on how well it values, engages and includes the rich diversity of students, staff, faculty, administrators, and alumni constituents. More than a short-term project or single chapter initiative, this comprehensive approach requires a fundamental transformation of the community by embedding and practicing IE in every effort, aspect, and level of a fraternity and sorority community. The goal is to make IE a habit that is implemented and practiced consistently throughout a community.
So your plan has been created, revised (maybe), and now you are coming out of your officer term. Here are some questions you can ask yourself about the past year:
- What kind of impact did you have within your chapter?
- How will that impact be sustained?
- What suggestions do you have for future officers?
- What are you most proud of?
- What do you wish you could have done?
Use this time to critically reflect over the last year. Critically reflecting will help to provide for a smoother transition and greater success for the person moving into this position. [15 points]
Documentation includes a written reflection on the success of your action plan, not to exceed three pages. This reflection should detail the ways in which your chapter has achieved the outcomes detailed in this priority area (see section below). [Due]
