Community members gathered on Thursday, February 20, for “Nancy Toney: A Portrait of Strength, a Portal into the Past,” an examination of the life of Ms. Toney, a 19th-century African American woman whose personal history is connected with Loomis Chaffee’s Founders.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral and valued concerns throughout the Loomis community. Maintaining an environment that supports equity, inclusivity, and the pursuit of justice for all people, as expressed in our Diversity & Inclusion Mission Statement, is an on-going commitment. The Office of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion assists in maintaining the school's focus and continuous evaluation on that commitment.

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.
