Learning Communities for Institutional Change & Excellence (LCICE)

Cultivating Inclusive Practice through Dialogue


LCICE is a unit in the Division of Diversity, Equity and Educational Achievement (DDEEA) that offers academic-year and semester-long Learning Communities (LCs) to help build institutional capacity to implement our strategic diversity initiatives and develop our abilities to engage effectively in a globally interconnected workforce and world. The success of this university in its mission as a world-class teaching, research, and public service institution depends on nurturing a diverse body of students, faculty and staff to foster innovation and excellence.

To achieve this mission, the Learning Communities provide a forum for active participation in dialogue focused on creating working, learning, and teaching environments where everyone is heard, valued and included. Through dialogue, one learns how to engage in transformative changes of behaviors, policies, and procedures that collectively impact the campus climate for ALL community members.
