About the Council

About the Council

The Council works on institutional inclusivity initiatives: faculty orientation, campus-wide programming, student leadership, and off-campus engagement. The Council provides leadership and vision in collaboration with the Difference and Media Project, Bard Student Government, Chaplaincy, Office of the Dean of Student Affairs, and faculty leadership committees.


Our Mission

The Bard College Council for Inclusive Excellence approaches diversity, inclusion, and equity as central to a liberal arts education and critical to the wellbeing of a democratic culture. The Council includes faculty, staff, and students whose work focuses broadly on learning, teaching, student development, institutional functioning, and engagement in local and global communities.
