The Center is led by a team of diversity, equity, and belonging practitioners who are committed to a service-learning approach to teaching and learning that promotes peace, justice, and equity. The Assistant Head of School for Co-Curricular Programs oversees the Center and the leadership team works collaboratively at the intersections of their distinctive programs.
The Center’s staff serve as the lead facilitators in instituting academic, social, and cultural programming, as well as professional growth and development strategies in these areas. However, Friends Seminary believes it is everyone’s responsibility to serve as an advocate for underrepresented groups and to help foster an inclusive climate that promotes a more peaceful world through civic engagement. Toward that end, the Center staff will work collaboratively with all constituencies: students, faculty, administrators, parents, alums, the Board of Trustees, and NYQM members.
