The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) Fund is an option for those who want to further the school's work in this area. The Summit has been building social justice, anti-bias and civil rights education into the curriculum for many years. To develop scope and sequence of DE&I principles from preschool through grade 12, we adopted and are benchmarking 20 standards grouped into four areas: Identity, Diversity, Justice and Action. Two of the Hallmarks of a Notre Dame education – provided to us by the Sisters – echo these standards: “We embrace the gift of diversity” and “We honor the dignity and sacredness of each person.” Your gift in support of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion will help us continue to develop programs and support.
Your gift in support of the DE&I Fund will help us continue to develop programs and programming support of our mission statement which calls on us to challenge every child. While we welcome gifts of any size, a gift of $1,000 could fund a local DE&I speaker for faculty-staff in-service training. A gift of $5,000 to $15,000 could fund a national speaker.
