VERMILLION, S.D. – Lamont Sellers, Vice President for Diversity at the University of South Dakota, spoke about USD’s efforts to empower its students, staff and faculty through a concept called inclusive excellence on this week’s episode of the university podcast Credit Hour.

“Lamont does a great job bringing theory to practice and explaining how inclusive excellence is implemented at USD,” said Michael Ewald, USD’s manager of media relations and host of Credit Hour.

“One of the aspects of inclusive excellence that I really enjoy is that it moves it from being the singular focus of an individual or office to really becoming the responsibility of everyone on campus to be pay attention to these things,” said Sellers.
