Inclusion: The active and intentional operationalization of diversity and equity within every facet of university life and activities (intellectual, social, cultural, geographical) with which individuals might connect. Organizationally, inclusion requires the identification and removal of barriers (e.g. physical, procedural, visible, invisible, intentional, unintentional) that inhibit members’ participation and contribution. Inclusion also requires every member of the community to demonstrate university values and principles of fairness, justice, equity, and respect in learning, teaching, research, service and employment, by being open to different voices and perspectives, developing an understanding of different cultures, experiences and communities, and making a conscious effort to be welcoming, helpful and respectful to everyone.
