Diversity, equity, inclusionOur Jesuit mission calls us to action, and at De Smet Jesuit, we actively engage in our faith through our commitment to social justice.
What does this look like at our school? We start with our students. Our students come from 65 zip codes as well as several countries from around the world. We offer various affinity groups, a Learning Center for students with learning disabilities, and school-wide events that celebrate and honor the diversity present at our school. De Smet Jesuit remains committed to financial aid and equitable admissions practices, and our faculty and staff participate in ongoing training and professional development in equity and inclusion topics.
Under the expertise and guidance of our full-time Director of Diversity and Inclusion, who is a member of the Leadership Team, we partner with nonprofit organizations committed to social justice as well as our parents and alumni who contribute significantly to this critical dialogue. We actively engage in community conversations around specific local and national events, and we continue to rely on our faith, daily prayer, and the Jesuit call to be men and women for and with others.
