Summer Candid 2016 (21)

Inclusion and Community Engagement

The Division of Inclusion and Community Engagement is dedicated to fostering connections – both on and off campus—that enrich the Ursinus experience for all faculty, staff, and students. 

Our Vision

The Division of Inclusion and Community Engagement will serve as a model for the campus community by promoting practices that affirm the identities of those we encounter in our daily work – students, staff, faculty, and community members. We will conduct our work intentionally by encouraging thought outside of traditional models, utilizing current research-based practices, and by actively considering our own and others’ power and position to foster a sense of belonging, connectedness, respect, trust, and humility within our Division and among those we serve. We envision a beloved community of “total interrelatedness,” in which persons consider their well-being to be dependent upon the well-being of others.

Our Work

Our work takes place in support of, and in alignment with, the college’s mission and its community values, which recognizes the diversity of individuals in our community, and strives to create connections that promote belonging, inclusion, and equity for all constituents.

The responsibilities of this office are both responsive, such as providing a first point of contact for local community leaders, but also proactive. In this latter role, the office seeks – with other partners on campus - to make Ursinus a welcoming community for people from all backgrounds and people in all roles: students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the larger Collegeville community.

On February 10, 2022, President Marstellar announced the new structure for the Inclusion and Community Egagement division.
