Message from the Executive Director and Interim University Diversity Officer

Byron Adams, MS



Welcome to the Center for Student Success and Belonging (CSSB) where we strive to ensure that everyone matters.

Inclusive Excellence is a planning process intended to help each UW System institution establish a comprehensive and well-coordinated set of systemic actions that focus specifically on fostering greater diversity, equity, inclusion, and accountability at every level of university life. The central premise of Inclusive Excellence holds that UW System colleges and universities need to intentionally integrate their diversity efforts into the core aspects of their institutions—such as their academic priorities, leadership, quality improvement initiatives, decision-making, day-to-day operations, and organizational cultures—in order to maximize their success.

At the Center for Student Success and Belonging, our mission is to create a strong campus infrastructure for Inclusive Excellence to serve as a catalyst that transforms how diversity is advanced, achieved and experienced at UW Oshkosh.

We invite you to visit the Campus Center for Equity and Diversity located at 717 W. Irving Avenue, between Fletcher Hall and Horizon Village, and hope you will take advantage of the many programs and services offered through our departments. We encourage you to explore CSSB’s website, where you will find information on programs, services and resources related to diversity and inclusion.
