diversityInclusive Community Initiative Statement

The school’s Mission emphasizes diversity and inclusion as essential. It is critical that we continue learning, celebrating, challenging our perceptions, and developing empathy as we commit to a better understanding of the importance that diversity contributes to our world and the societal challenges inherent with ethnicity, culture, gender, and sexual orientation.

An Inclusive Community Initiative must have pertinent and up-to-date information woven throughout the curriculum, faculty work sessions, and student programs. A truly inclusive community strives to empower all students, faculty, and staff to build on and promote a stronger Saint Mary’s Community in which all voices are respected and valued.
