Why IExcel Education?

Quest 2028

The diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) skills gained through IExcel Education are at the core of VCU’s institutional values and its strategic plan, Quest 2028.

Culture and Climate

IExcel Education provides the tools to actualize the goals identified through the biennial Organizational Culture and Climate survey.

Inclusive Excellence

Diversity is among our greatest assets at VCU, and our effort to create and sustain an equitable and inclusive environment is the best approach toward leveraging this asset into universal excellence and success.
