Task Force update from facilitator Terri Givens `83
The Equity and Inclusion Task Force is continuing their regular meetings and we are currently considering plans by the administration to address issues raised by the BIPOC Coalition. The administration is actively engaged in a variety of areas to ensure that they are meeting the goals of addressing equity and inclusion in a way that allows students to feel safe and heard. We will be exploring avenues to ensure that the leadership is in regular dialogue with students, faculty, staff, and alumni in meeting the school's mission and intent related to equity.
UPDATES FROM THE PRESIDENT

Update from President Michael Dougherty
Dear Members of the BIPOC Coalition,
In the months since we received your letter, “An Invitation to Meet and a Call to Action,” the administration, faculty, staff, and board members at Gonzaga Prep have engaged in reflection, dialogue, and prayer on the topics of racial equity and justice. The sharing of your experiences of racism and bias while at Gonzaga Prep has been particularly powerful, and has led us to challenge our views of ourselves and our perspectives regarding the experiences of our BIPOC students. It is our shared desire to grow in ways that will support the educational success of every student at Gonzaga Prep.
