Noble and Greenough School's Commitment to Diversity
Diversity is the presence of a variety of identities and ways of thinking in an institution. Inclusion occurs when everyone has a sense of belonging, feels respected, valued and seen for who they are, and feels a level of supportive energy and commitment from leaders and peers so that all people can do their best work.
Nobles makes a substantial and concerted effort to ensure that people of many backgrounds and identities are a part of our community. This rich mosaic offers wonderful opportunities for cross-cultural sharing and learning. As an institution, we believe that the inclusion of dynamic voices can only enhance the rigor and excellence of our school.
As a school, we are committed to:
- Fostering the constant growth and learning required to be an inclusive community.
- Acknowledging the dignity of all members of our community.
- Respecting the diversity of appearance, opinions, ways of thinking, and beliefs.
- Intentionally teaching cultural competency skills.
We work towards inclusion holistically and strategically. Our faculty participate in professional development related to diversity and inclusion and are committed to curricular review and revision. Our Diversity Initiatives office facilitates numerous student-led organizations and hosts programming for parents/guardians. Each year, we host several annual and special events and guest speakers to further our mission.
At Nobles, we inspire students to be leaders for the public good. Diversity and inclusion are inherent in this mission and only make our institution more excellent.
