We contend that education is one of the most powerful tools for disrupting racism and bias. As a community of faith, love, and reason, our commitment to racial equity work and to the dismantling of systemic oppression is fundamental to our core values and is non-negotiable.
We vow to build a community that is explicitly anti-bias and anti-racist and to do this work in a manner that is transparent and accountable through regularly reporting on our progress towards these goals.
Through the continued creation of intentional spaces for learning, reflection, and courageous conversations we will shape our culture and practices in accordance with our values. The explicit lens of diversity, equity and inclusion will be applied to curriculum, faculty/staff professional development, faculty evaluation, hiring practices, the admissions process, in addition to other facets of school life.
We condemn white supremacy, racial hatred, structural inequality, and systemic oppression in all forms. We are dedicated to dismantling these systems and disrupting both the complicity and silence which surrounds these systems. Campbell Hall will not tolerate racist, biased, or demeaning acts or language and will take swift action against any one deemed to have inflicted psychological, emotional, or physical harm against another community member. There is no room for racism, discrimination, or bigotry of any kind in our community.
Our community members deserve to feel safe, supported, valued, and seen. We therefore, commit ourselves to active listening, reflection, and engagement and to creating purposeful, lasting change.
