Mission & Overview
The Equity, Inclusion and Social Justice Committee (EISJ) explores the nature of identity, challenges systemic and personal bias, creates opportunities for deeper understanding across difference, fosters friendships, and empowers members of the community to be mindful agents of positive social change.
EISJ expands multicultural skills and practices throughout our school with emphasis on four levels: individual growth, interpersonal communication, institutional policies and cultural traditions. Fostering a community-wide appreciation and acceptance of the many aspects of difference including gender, gender expression, race, socioeconomics, family composition, learning differences, religion, political beliefs, physical abilities and other categories that we will continue to define for ourselves.
Each year all faculty members undergo various trainings and professional development activities to deepen their practice in the area of diversity and inclusion. From this solid foundation, they are able to take a leadership role in our daily efforts to increase community-wide engagement in this work.
