Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Chestnut Hill College

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Chestnut Hill College

0

Chestnut Hill College has a long-standing history of inclusion. We were founded by the Sisters of Saint Joseph whose mission is to serve the Dear Neighbor without distinction and with active and inclusive love. We carry this mission into our life at Chestnut Hill College and it is the foundation of the Office of DEI.

In 2016, Chestnut Hill College responded to the national dialogue about race by initiating A PATH FORWARD: PROMOTING EQUITY, DIVERSITY, INCLUSION AND RACIAL JUSTICE AT CHESTNUT HILL COLLEGE. We seek to further cultivate a campus environment marked by equity, diversity, inclusion, and racial justice.

Committed to achieving diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout campus, Chestnut Hill College maintains a Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee, which is made up of students, faculty and staff, who rotate through serving terms. Click here to MEET THE TEAM for the 2021-22 academic year.

I Can't Breathe...A Series of Thought Provoking Conversations Around Race

The I Can’t Breathe Conversation Series features panelists (members from the campus or local community) who share their personal perspectives regarding racism as a foundational pillar in the development of this nation.  The dialogue created a narrative of personal voice from the panelists, served as a vehicle used to help humanize the experiences of members from Black and Brown communities, and revealed major differences in worldviews or perspectives related to issues of race.
