Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
St. George's is committed to preparing students to live in a diverse world, one where all students will need the cultural competency necessary to interact with people from a variety of experiences and backgrounds.
Some of our programming in this area is special and specific — taking the form of events and programs. We are also committed to examining all aspects of our work with students to ensure that we are as inclusive as possible. Read more about our current goals and initiatives here:
I want to make clear our commitment to make this Hilltop a place where our Black community members are seen, safe, heard, and embraced — and where all of our students, faculty, and staff feel welcome and are equipped and inspired to be agents of anti-racism and inclusion.
