Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
At SCH, we curate brave spaces. We stimulate meaningful discussions, and encourage students to show up and engage. Our Diversity Leadership Team—consisting of faculty members from each division—works hard to ensure that every member of the SCH community feels seen and valued.
Diversity is a condition of excellence. Embracing a diverse, inclusive community is fundamental to providing the most rigorous, globally competitive education. At SCH, we aim to engage, understand, and celebrate the broad range of human experiences and perspectives. Through our curriculum, professional development, community-centered events, and daily interactions, we are committed to cultivating empathy and inclusion, and to nurturing the authentic expression of every individual.
ENGAGEMENT ON CAMPUS
Happy Juneteenth! In case you missed it, Juneteenth was officially signed as a federal holiday just yesterday [June 17, 2021]. But it's something we've been celebrating in this country since 1979: when all enslaved people were finally set free. It took 2 year for word to make it all the way to Texas...but ever since it's been a day where African-American families celebrate and learn about their culture. Families who don't identify as African-American also learn about all the ways in which our country has progressed.

Hiring a workforce at SCH that better represents the diversity of the student body.
Training our faculty and staff in DEI, rethinking curriculum, and analyzing the lens through which we teach.
