Diversity - Equity - Inclusion
Catholic Social Teaching calls us to pursue justice and peace, and live out the virtue of solidarity with all people. We take these teachings to heart and personalize them to who we are as a school. Our Christian 信仰s demand that we educate and challenge our school community to reject all forms of discrimination. We pursue and promote all forms of diversity in our school including but not limited to: ability, 年龄, 信仰, 种族, 家庭结构, 性别, 性别认同, 学习风格, 比赛, 宗教, 性取向, 社会经济地位. We continually strive to make all members of the Bishop Blanchet community feel welcome, 庆祝, 和安全的.
的se efforts are modeled on our 多样性,装备的ity, and Inclusion (DEI) Framework. 的 DEI Framework is grounded in the four foundational principles of Catholic Social Teaching: Solidarity, 辅助性原则, Human Dignity and the 共同利益. In utilizing the DEI Framework, our community is called to become architects of a just society through a cycle of reflection, 观察, 分析, 和行动.
As part of the Bishop Blanchet mission, we strive to form and educate each student within a challenging, 积极的, 多样化的环境. An integral part of this mission is our ability to continuously expand on the ways we cultivate a more inclusive and diverse school community reflective of our global community. Our increasingly global community is one where 比赛, 性别, class, ability, and 年龄 intersect. 在这个现实中, we recognize our responsibility as global citizens to eng年龄 in continuous education and awareness.
