Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Jesuit High School is committed to having a student body and faculty that represents and celebrates diversity and inclusion. We promote and encourage critical thinking, dialogue, understanding, and awareness. Jesuit embraces and is inclusive of ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic, sexual orientation, religious and other diversity. Such diversity broadens our student and faculty educational experiences.


Faces of Jesuit

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Office sits down with current Jesuit students to discuss culture, heritage, identity and more in our Faces of Jesuit article series. 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Ongoing Initiatives

Our Board of Trustees, in coordination with our Jesuit Leadership Team and our Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, has identified five key Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategic Initiatives for 2020-21 and Beyond. 

Social Justice Week

Social Justice Week is an opportunity to intentionally focus on issues of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion through the lens of human dignity.
