Through varied program offerings, the CFI engages with the local, national, and global academic and faculty development communities on issues such as inclusive excellence, the changing professoriate, and diverse forms of scholarship. Notable is the framing of access, inclusion, diversity, and social justice initiatives that both center and wrap around our work. Acknowledging the importance of engagement – with ideas and with the world – we believe richness of difference is integral to the cultivation of high-quality academic programs. Further, access and inclusion initiatives must coexist at multiple levels (i.e., ground-up and top-down) in order to enhance faculty’s diversity capacities in teaching, scholarly creation, and leadership. In addition, CFI access and inclusion initiatives reflect on aspects of access and inclusion in the discipline of educational development itself.
