The College of Western Idaho is committed to promoting an understanding of and appreciation for the increasingly diverse backgrounds and beliefs of those who comprise the College community, as well as the larger community of which CWI is a part.

Mission: The committee for Inclusive Excellence works with students, faculty, staff, administrators and community partners to ensure that CWI is recognized for utilizing our differences to stimulate and encourage social justice, multicultural competence, and effective and engaged citizenship.  We are committed to ensuring access and fair treatment to historically underrepresented populations, and promote policies, programs, and actions that cultivate habits of inclusivity and equity.

  • Create a college that is welcoming to diverse populations
  • Hire and retain a diverse workforce
  • Create environments for student learning that are inclusive of and sensitive to a diverse student population
