Affinity Groups for Students, Faculty, and Families
These groups provide internal and external support, a safe place, networking, and professional development for faculty and staff.
DEI Committee of the Board
The Lovett Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee has been tasked to lay the foundation of developing a strategic approach to integrating DEI skills and practices into the school’s organizational systems and policies, enhancing the educational outcomes and experiences for every Lovett student and family. This is a standing committee of the Board of Trustees and will continue exercising strategic leadership to ensure that our DEI practices will help draw all members in our community even more closely together.
Professional Development Workshops
Lovett faculty and administration form a community of professions dedicated to learning and refining their practice in the areas of diversity and inclusion. Each year, faculty read and discuss a wide range of books looking at issues related to gender, race, and social class. During the onboarding process all new faculty attend DEI training. Additional workshops are offered throughout the year to faculty and staff.
National SEED (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) Project
SEED is a peer-led professional development program that promotes change through self-reflection and interpersonal dialogue and builds capacity for more equitable curriculum, campuses, workplaces, and communities. Lovett sponsors one or more SEED groups each year.
Diversity Action Committee (DAC)
An internal committee, chaired by the Director of Multicultural Programs and Services, that meets quarterly to discuss and review the policies and procedures that are in place to promote the principles of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice.
Multicultural coordinators are located in each division and serve as resources around issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice. They also serve on the Diversity Action Committee.
