The UW-Madison Learning Communities for Institutional Change and Excellence (LCICE) provide a forum for active participation in dialogue focused on creating working, learning, and teaching environments where everyone is heard, valued and included. Through dialogue, one learns how to engage in transformative changes of behaviors, policies, and procedures that collectively impact the campus climate for ALL community members.
One of the six priorities in UW-Madison’s Campus Strategic Framework, titled For Wisconsin and the World, is to “Enhance diversity in order to ensure excellence in education and research.”
As members of the campus community, all faculty, staff, and students are expected and committed to making our work, research, living and learning-places more inclusive, equitable, and just. This encompasses preparing for a diverse, interconnected, global community; creating inclusive and respectful learning, living, and working environments; and aligning the efforts of social justice, equity, and inclusion across the campus.
To achieve this mission, the UW Learning Communities for Institutional Change and Excellence (LCICE) offers academic year and semester-long Learning Communities (LCs). LCs provide a forum for active participation in dialogue about creating working, learning and teaching environments where everyone is included, valued and heard. Through dialogue we learn how to engage in transformative change of behaviors, policies, and procedures that collectively impact the campus climate for ALL community members.
The LCICE Learning Communities Outcome GOALS are:
- To develop attitudes and understanding for engaging with all human differences
- To acquire tools and skills to help build inclusive working, teaching, and living environments
- To effectively interact and communicate across all human differences
- To learn and practice ways of engaging with conflict
- To build inclusive and equitable relationships across campus and the greater Madison community
