As a Jesuit school community, Gonzaga Preparatory School seeks to advance a core Ignatian worldview that presupposes the goodness in all people and recognizes the Catholic principle that every person is charged with the Divine, created in the image and likeness of God. In May 2022, the school implemented an institutional plan for advancing the values of equity and inclusion within its community. The goals for this plan were drawn from the updated standards for Jesuit schools in the United States.
This Institutional Strategy is the work of two committees of 20 members of the Gonzaga Prep faculty and staff and has been endorsed by the Board of Directors. The committees sought to examine and prioritize clearly actionable opportunities that advance equity and inclusion in every aspect of our community. Through this process, the committees drafted recommendations which were then presented for feedback from the full faculty and staff. This collaboration helped the committees inform the development of the Institutional Strategy by identifying priorities and efforts for the next 3 years.
We look forward to regularly updating our community through an Annual Report on Equity and Inclusion, which will be published each fall. In it, we will share vital statistics about our community, progress on key initiatives we have achieved in the previous year, and our priorities for the year ahead.
