The Loomis Chaffee Center for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
The Loomis Chaffee Center for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion promotes and fosters an inclusive school community through the celebration of the diversity of its members; a sustained examination of privilege and biases; and the evolution of institutional policies, structures, and practices. This necessary work is guided by respect for the dignity and contribution of each member of the school community and a commitment to the best self in service of the common good.
