Toward a Pathway to Purpose
Annual Inclusion Update
In the fall of 2017, Edgewood College President, Scott Flanagan, introduced a new Strategic Plan which sets a dynamic
framework to guide our actions and decisions into the future. Three strategic themes (Student Learning, Inclusion
& Community Impact) provide the grounding for our framework and Strategic Area #5 specifically highlights our
commitment to building an inclusive College where individuals across the rich spectrum of diversity succeed and belong.
This annual report reflects on the significant strides in the past 12 months toward achieving Edgewood’s vision of
being an inclusive model of learning, teaching, and scholarship. Institutionally, we continue to build on our articulated
commitment to diversity & inclusion and fundamentally believe that diversity is a core element of meaningful teaching
and learning. This report is organized around six major sections: Investing in Diversity, Living Out Our Commitment,
Events & Campus Engagement, #NotOnOurCampus, Deeping Partnerships, and Campus Demographics.
Together, we have made great progress in developing a foundation for inclusive excellence, but it is important to recognize
that there is still much work to be done to ensure every student and employee can be successful at Edgewood College.
In the spirit of transparency, we offer this annual update on inclusion.
