About the Buckeye Portal for Inclusive Excellence

Buckeye Portal for Inclusive Excellence

The Buckeye Portal for Inclusive Excellence is a central repository of Ohio State University activities, events, and programs and strategic planning efforts that support the university's efforts toward inclusive excellence. As stated in Ohio State's Strategic Plan, “diversity and inclusion are core principles in everything we do at this institution, from academic programming and resources to the hiring and promotion of faculty and staff.” Through the portal, we help our university succeed by creating and managing an inventory of our engagements and investments. By using this tool, staff, faculty, and students can share promising practices, find collaborators, and generate new opportunities to further enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion. The Buckeye Portal for Inclusive Excellence is a resource for the planning and action process. You can search for examples of Plans for Inclusive Excellence and query activities, events, and programs to get ideas and find collaborators. Additionally, we have diversity and inclusion education, recruitment, and campus resources.

Faculty, staff, and students with a name.# must request access the Buckeye Portal for Inclusive Excellence. To request access, please complete the request form and your submission will be reviewed by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
