Inclusive Excellence Subcommittee

The Inclusive Excellence (IE) Subcommittee is charged with promoting inclusive and equitable practices within USAC while building relationships across the institution to encourage initiatives which promote a more equitable and inclusive culture for staff. Members of the IE subcommittee include Chair Courtney Gandy, Vice Chair Shelby Dawkins, Tracey Boggs, Trisha Ritter, and Patrick Weeks. This year, the IE subcommittee have identified Alignment and Education as two primary themes to focus on for the year. The Inclusive Excellence subcommittee has identified the continued need to ensure USAC is fully aligned with its commitment to all staff and operating at its most inclusive and are in the process of a review of the organization’s bylaws and historical application and recruitment data, as well as fostering dialogue with the other subcommittees about equity and inclusion in their work. IE is also in the process of working with university partners to find and collect educational DEI resources available throughout the university system in hopes that these resources can be listed in one central location. The Inclusive Excellence subcommittee is passionate about making the university system as inclusive an environment as possible for staff and look forward to encouraging more conversations about Ohio State culture and practices.
