Commitment to Diversity

Commitment to Diversity

Multiple identities and ways of thinking elevate Nobles and propel us forward. A true sense of belonging, respect, recognition, value and confidence in the support of leaders and peers helps us to do our best work and to grow personally and socially.

At Nobles, we work to create an inclusive and equitable community by:

  • Promoting constant growth and learning through sharing ideas and personal experiences.
  • Acknowledging the dignity of all of our members.
  • Respecting an array of opinions, appearance, lifestyles, beliefs and ways of thinking.
  • Teaching cultural competency skills to our students and to the adults who support them.
  • Supporting student-led organizations as well as programming for their parents and guardians.

We want to hear everyone’s stories, and from there, to build a curriculum and help our community see everybody’s experience as valid and unique.Erica Pernell Dean of Diversity Initiatives

Nobles offers opportunities for cross-cultural sharing and discovery on every level. Empowering diverse voices is essential to the excellence of our school, but also to preparing students to thrive beyond our campus. Our mission of inspiring leaders for the public good relies on courageous conversations and eye-opening experiences, and encouraging students to share those perspectives in their academic, professional and personal lives.
