CtC is proud to partner with the The University of Missouri's Division of Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity for this summit. The University of Missouri strives to be a 21st century learning community defined by excellence through the affirmation of difference in the composition of its leadership, faculty, staff and students. As a result, the MU Division of Inclusion, Diversity & Equity was created in 2016 to foster an inclusive living, learning, and working community where everyone is valued and inspired to reach their full potential. The division achieves this overarching goal through a number of programming efforts and support services including the Diversity Peer Educators, the LGBTQ Resource Center, Citizenship@Mizzou, CitizenshipToo, the Office of Civil Rights & Title IX, the Gaines/Oldham Black Culture Center, the Multicultural Center, the LGBTQ Resource Center, Diversity101, Workplace Diversity trainings, and a comprehensive faculty recruitment and retention plan. Thanks to these efforts and many others, the MU Division of Inclusion, Diversity & Equity is in position to become a national exemplar where the campus, local communities, and the state embody inclusive excellence.
