The Multicultural Leadership Experience is a collaboration between Campus Life and the Initiatives for Identity, Inclusion & Belonging (i3b).

The purpose of the Multicultural Leadership Experience is to provide a space for students and student leaders who identify with diverse or marginalized backgrounds to discover their own capacity to lead, while also promoting a better understanding of their experiences, issues, and outcomes in navigating their own collegiate careers.

This third session of the mini series will focus on the topic of Decoding Inclusive Excellencespecifically on questioning what Inclusive Excellence means in the context of UMBC and beyond. Participants will connect their understanding of our campus community and tools learned in order to collectively co-create a new definition for Inclusive Excellence. 

Each mini series session will provide participants with:

  • connections to campus and resources
  • meaning-making through reflection and group discussions 
  • leadership learning through the lens of multiculturalism, diversity and inclusion
  • and opportunities to engage with other students across different areas of campus involvement
