The mission of the IDEALS Institute is twofold:

  • To undertake cutting-edge research on issues of diversity and inclusion and be a research-hub of expertise, leadership, and support for equity, inclusion, and other dimension of diversity.
  • To develop and deliver a comprehensive array of educational and training components (courses, workshops, online seminars, etc.) about diversity and inclusion that will provide knowledge, skills, and tools for stakeholders to create and sustain change in their organizations.

Such change will foster a more creative, inclusive, respectful, and productive workforce and workplace and contribute to the type of climate and culture that will yield enriched learning experiences that foster academic and workforce success for all.
