The 2023-2024 Communities of Excellence Framework is Now Available for Purchase

The much-anticipated revision has been successfully completed, and we couldn't be more thrilled to unveil the changes that reflect our dedication to continuous growth and improvement.  We listened to your comments and questions about the criteria, and your feedback is reflected in this revision.

In addition to input from community leaders and our performance excellence colleagues, a national task force of DEIA content experts contributed their insights and experience to help us ensure that the framework embodies the leading-edge practices for ensuring that excellence and equity are one and the same. 

Because of the significant investment we put into this revision, we will be charging for copies of both the PDF and paper versions.  Copies can be purchased through our website.  Discounts are available for bulk purchases and licensing options are available.
