Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging at De La Salle
In support of the school’s Lasallian mission, De La Salle is committed to promoting positive social relations within a diverse group of students and to building a healthy school environment that consists of respectful and culturally sensitive interactions between students and between students and faculty.
De La Salle works to create an inclusive Catholic educational program and pedagogy that fosters respect for others, appreciation of individual, cultural, and socioeconomic differences, and commitment to social responsibility, equity, and justice.
De La Salle values and recognizes that the many expressions of diversity add to the school community. We, therefore, work to ensure the inclusion of these identities in the culture of the school as a major component in preparing our students to be active participants and positive contributors to society.
Each day, the students of De La Salle High School aspire to live the Lasallian Core Principles through their actions in the classroom, on the field, and in the community. De La Salle will continue its ongoing education surrounding important social issues that impact our students on a daily basis.
Our dedicated programming will continue to focus on how the De La Salle community should and does, practice Respect for All Persons to create an Inclusive Community. Our themes of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging will serve as the foundation of our approach to educating our young men about the importance of respect for one another, bystander training, and much more.
This directive has produced a number of educational opportunities for the school, including its involvement with Dr. Jackson Katz, CEO of Mentors in Violence Prevention Strategies, and Ashanti Branch, founder of the Ever Forward Program.
Education for student leaders, faculty, staff, and administration will continue throughout the school year. Please return to this page for monthly updates to see how the De La Salle community is living: Respect for All Persons and promoting an Inclusive Community.
