Inclusive Excellence at SCNM


SCNM is committed as an institution to building a community where all individuals feel respected, included, supported, and valued.

The Institution embarked on a process of gathering data from our community to both determine a baseline regarding our campus climate and to provide insight to help us envision how we will continue to grow and change as we pursue the ideals of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

  • Engaged with the Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium (HEDS) on a quantitative campus climate survey in September/October 2020
  • Engaged with the ASU Center for the Study of Race and Democracy (CSRD) for qualitative data. The CSRD team provided 15 focus groups with students, staff, faculty, and alumni in November and December of 2020.

We are now launching a Task Force with a charge to review, analyze, and make sense of the data collected by SCNM via HEDS climate survey and CSRD focus groups to make short and long-term initiative recommendations.

The task force will launch in April, 2021 and meet twice per month from May – July with updates to the community monthly.
