The Presidential Task Force on Inclusion and Belonging has released a discussion draft of the executive summary of their upcoming report.

The Task Force was convened in Fall 2016 by President Faust to consider a set of important and interrelated questions designed to advance Harvard on the path from diversity to belonging. Over the past year, the Task Force has worked to consider issues of inclusion and belonging on campus through meetings with a variety of community groups, outreach workshops, a day-long retreat, and an afternoon of engagement.

The discussion draft outlines the core elements of their proposed strategy through a set of “Shared Standards for Inclusive Excellence” to guide decision-making at all levels of the University.

With the release of the discussion draft, the Task Force is soliciting feedback and input from members of the Harvard community. Comments and suggestions can be submitted via the Solution Space through November 30.
