Inclusive Excellence Strategy Plan

The Inclusive Excellence 2025 Strategic Plan for The College of St. Scholastica is a living plan of action that is intended to serve as a blueprint for embedding diversity, equity and inclusion into the systems and culture of the College. Equity, diversity and inclusion are integral to who we are as a Benedictine institution. An intentional focus on equity, diversity and inclusion at all levels of the College is essential to our mission as a Catholic Benedictine institution. Inclusion is at the very heart of what it means to be an institution committed to Catholic social justice.
