About Inclusive Excellence

Welcome to the Division of Inclusive Excellence!


The Division of Inclusive Excellence is responsible for ensuring that Sacramento State’s commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion is both embedded throughout our University and communicated to the larger Sacramento community.

Our Vision

We envision a day when...Sacramento State is a place of belonging for all students, faculty, staff, and community members

We envision a day when...Our campus is free from all forms of bias, discrimination, and hierarchies of human value

We envision a day when...Exchange of ideas do not harm, yet bulid character, bridge misunderstanding, bolster innovation, and empower and uplift our humanity

We envision a day when...Every individual who has graced the Sac State campus will be an ambassador for antiracism and anti-oppression, a champion for diversity, equity, and inclusion, and an agent of change that impacts the entire Sacramento region and beyond.
