Community & Inclusion
“My last word to you is that you live in harmony, united together (Insieme) all of one heart and one will: Be bound to one another by the bond of charity, esteeming each other, bearing with each other in Jesus Christ.”
~St. Angela Merici
Six students attended the annual NAIS Student Diversity Leadership Conference (SDLC) held the last week of November.
Building Community is a core value of Ursuline education, and the opening weeks of the new school year have been especially robust with activities to celebrate the diverse heritage of our student body, faculty, and staff.
Students and employees continue to engage in programs and activities to educate, strengthen awareness of issues, and create opportunities for achieving Community & Inclusion, a school-wide priority at Ursuline.
