Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
The Loomis Chaffee School is committed to sustaining an environment in which diversity is one of the cornerstones of our community.
Only when the community fully commits to the pursuit of justice, equity, and inclusivity is it then able to maximize the benefits of diversity. As an institution steeped in the liberal arts tradition, students and faculty regularly engage material that is enhanced by the multiplicity of voices within our school. We fundamentally believe that we become better people when we learn from and embrace others who have different experiences and perspectives from our own. Accordingly, the Loomis Chaffee School places great value on respect for the dignity and contribution of each and every one of its members.
