In 2016, CELT was awarded a one-year grant from the IDEA organization to document the impact of CELT’s inclusive excellence programming from December 2013 to December 2016. The goal of the Inclusive Excellence program is to make classrooms a more open and welcoming environment for all, and to ensure equitable learning outcomes. Through interviews, surveys and pre-and -post program documents the research project explored the impact of CELT Inclusive Excellence programming on course climate and teaching.

In 2013, CELT was awarded a three year grant to explore the topic of teaching for inclusive excellence. Over a three year period, seven faculty learning communities were formed to focus on related topics such as managing difficult dialogues, the implications for inclusive teaching in online environments, STEM classrooms, large enrollment courses, and assessment practices.
