2024 Diversity and Inclusion Summit

The 9th Diversity and Inclusion Summit is dedicated to enhancing our understanding of practices that actively contribute to and maintain inclusive excellence. We will reflect on actions that sustain the momentum of belonging through introspection and dialogue to strengthen the framework that helps each community member feel a deep sense of belonging at Boston College.

2024 Summit Program Book

Inclusive Excellence

The Office for Institutional Diversity supports the mission of Boston College by promoting a culture of inclusion that values each individual. We believe that diversity fuels excellence, and that the best ideas are discovered when people—from different backgrounds, who have lived different realities, who have overcome different challenges—work together to expand their authentic perspectives.
