Community Life and Diversity at Chapin

Chapin's Commitment to Diversity

Chapin is committed to diversity in its culture, curriculum and program. Believing that an equitable, inclusive community is essential to learning, Chapin actively seeks families, faculty and staff who bring a range of experiences to the school. Chapin embraces and respects differences in age, ethnicity, gender identity, learning style, physical ability, race, religion, sexual orientation and socioeconomic class. Expecting and requiring respect for others are hallmarks of our educational process.

Chapin's Community Life and Diversity Council

The Community Life and Diversity Council, established August 2013, is a team comprised of Chapin community members from all areas of the school, led by the Director of Community Life and Diversity. Using Chapin’s Commitment to Diversity and Mission Statements as guides, the Council is responsible for examining the school’s efforts in supporting equity and inclusion across a multitude of social identifiers that include but are not limited to age, ethnicity, gender identity, learning style, ability, race, religion, sexual orientation and socioeconomic class within the Chapin community. The group exists to ensure that Chapin’s culture, curriculum and program support a culturally relevant community that is safe, welcoming and affirming.
