A Community of Individuals

At St. George’s, we work together to build an environment that welcomes, values and respects every member of our community regardless of age, ability, culture, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and socio-economic background. Our domestic students hail from 31 states – from Alabama to Wyoming – including the District of Columbia. Fifteen percent of our students identify themselves as students of color. Sixteen percent of our students come to St. George’s from international families, representing 23 countries spread across the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. The diversity of perspectives students bring to campus makes classroom discussion both stimulating and educational. Outside of class, students share their identities, culture and traditions in the dorms, through the arts and in student clubs.

Meet our Director of Diversity

Dr. Kim Bullock has been a member of the St. George's faculty since 1996 and in her tenure has become a highly respected leader among her peers in the independent school community, as well as a valuable mentor to scores of new teachers, students and alumni. A veterinarian by trade, Kim teaches biology, coaches JV girls' basketball and serves as a dorm parent. She advises our Insight multicultural student club, and has been a warm, welcoming presence to students of color for more than 20 years. Kim serves on the Board of Directors for the Association of Independent Schools of New England and for the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center in Newport. In the fall of 2016, she was named the recipient of the W. Clyde Dorsey ’70  Chair for Diversity, Inclusion, and Leadership. In addition, Kim leads our Diversity and Inclusion Book Series discussions, many of our in-service training days for faculty and diversity-focused sessions of our Community Life Program. She is also a lead planner for our annual Day of Engagement (an all-school community service event), and for our Weekend for Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion. Contact Dr. Kim Bullock at Diversity@stgeorges.edu.

Beloved Community Initiative

Unveiled in the fall of 2018, the “Beloved Community Initiative,” is an ongoing series of events focused on the history and legacy of race and slavery in the United States, Rhode Island, and St. George’s.

The program seeks “to move St. George’s closer to what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. described as the ‘Beloved Community,’ characterized by compassion, kindness, mutual understanding, and respect for the dignity of every human being,” according to School Chaplain Kirby.
