Appreciative Inquiry

 

For this forum, we will be using a modified appreciative inquiry process, in that we will only be engaging in two parts of the process: discovery and dreaming. We are going to ask participants to begin with a process of discovery where they will recall experiences and examples of times when diversity has been supported on our campus. The end result of this process will be to identify those “life giving forces” for diversity, equity, inclusion and inclusive excellence in our university that provide vitality and distinctive competence in these critical areas to our institution.

As part of this process we are looking at:
– What core factors enable diversity and excellence at our institution?
– What can we learn from our experiences, especially when we closely examine those moments when we have been at our best?
– What are our most effective practices, strengths, and best qualities–what do we need to preserve as we transform?
– What kind of organization do we want to create in the future that will address diversity and excellence–the organization that we and others want to be part of?
– How can our positive past, the best of our experiences, help us become more daring and innovative as we think about our true potential as a university of the future?
