Albright’s Commitment to an Inclusive, Thriving and Equitable Community

 

CITE-C would love to hear your thoughts, ideas, and concerns. Please email CITE-C@albright.edu.

This address will send an email to the members of the Steering Committee (Steering Committee
members listed in the Member link, above and to the left). To contact any individual Council
member, please follow the Committee Member link, above and to the left.

History

For a number of years, Albright College’s president has enjoyed the advisory work of the President’s Council on Diversity and Community (PCDC).  This council has done important work, advising the president on matters regarding diversity in the Albright Community.  Since the initiation of this council, both Albright College and our world have continued to evolve and change.  To fulfill Albright’s mission of equity and inclusivity and to create a thriving and welcoming community with full participation for all individuals and groups, leadership must continue to grow and evolve.

The current leadership of inclusivity and equity issues on Albright’s campus is the council for an Inclusive, Thriving and Equitable Community (CITE-C, pronounced “site see”).  This council is advisory to the president and shifts the focus from discussion of diversity matters to a more comprehensive focus on inclusivity and equity.  Members of this council will take a leadership role on campus in understanding, communicating, and demonstrating by example the importance of diversity, inclusivity, and equity in all its dimensions.  Our aspirational goal is true equity and full participation (“full participation” defined by Sturm and colleagues). This council will play an active role in engaging discussion and contributing to a thriving, equitable, and fully participating community. For more information, please see the link to the left for the Council’s complete charge.  Members of the Albright community are encouraged to communicate questions, ideas and concerns to council members.  Current council membership can be accessed through the “membership” link. 

photoTheme Years

A key responsibility of the council is the development of a theme for each academic year.  Council members will collaborate with other councils, committees, groups, and with the broader community to identify issues and items of interest and concern to the community.  Recommendations from the community will be sought and encouraged. The theme and its supporting materials will intentionally be made part of some Experience events, some academic and student events.  The theme of the year will culminate with the Campus Conversation in the spring.  Council members will lead and encourage (where appropriate) faculty to integrate parts of the theme and supporting material (or related supporting material) in courses.  More information about this year’s theme can be accessed through the link above and to the left.

Foundational Definitions

The council recognized that the work before us requires clarity of key concepts to serve as guideposts for actualizing institutional values. Some of these terms are already widely used on our campus—diversity and inclusivity, for example. Other terms are newer to our institution but seem essential to marking a more ambitious horizon.  Thus, the council adopted and uses the foundational definitions listed in"Foundational Definitions" link, above and to the left.
