About the Office of Inclusive Excellence

Since its founding CSUSM has made it a priority to be responsive to our regional needs and to provide our students with an excellent educational experience. Addressing our mission has meant providing our students with an inclusive educational experience that prepares them to be effective in a multicultural and diverse work and living environment, both in the region (where most of our students come from and stay) and in the world.  Because of our strong commitment to social justice and educational equity. We use a framework for diversity and inclusive excellence, referring to the many dimensions that it embraces—all the ways in which people are similar and different, particularly with regard to social identities—as well as the overarching framework that helps to define and guide CSUSM’s work in educational equity, inclusion, and social justice.

As an institution we believe our successes are dependent on how well we value, engage and include our students, staff, faculty, administrators and alumni constituents. We are committed to making you feel welcomed and valued at CSUSM!
