  1. Think of a time when you felt welcome and included: what about that experience made it feel welcoming and inclusive?
  2. What does inclusion look, sound, and feel like to you?
  3. If you could change one thing at SCSU related to diversity or inclusivity, what would it be?
  4. If you could choose one barrier to success related to diversity at SCSU, what would it be?
  5. If you were designing your version of a perfect campus climate at SCSU, what would it look like? What elements would be involved?
  6. Who bears the responsibility of managing diversity on the campus? Administration, faculty, staff, students?
