The newly created Diversity Council will hold its first meeting June 2 as the first step in a five-year strategic plan to increase diversity in more areas of the school initiated by the DEI office.

The council will be comprised of around 25 different faculty members and parents.

“We are looking to do more with the students next year,” Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Janine Jones (Taylor ’18, Avery ’23) said. “So now that we’ve hit this year with Professional Development and staff pretty hard, we’re going to try to do more in class meetings.”
