Mission and Goals

Grounded in the Jesuit and Marymount tradition of the promotion of justice and the call to be persons for and with others, acting out of our faith, inclusive of our varied religious traditions and worldviews, towards social justice for all, the Student Affairs’ initiatives focused on diversity, equity, inclusion, and access (DEI+A) support the University’s commitment to be an anti-racist institution. All are welcome in this place, and it is the mission of this division to ensure that all students and staff feel included, acknowledged, and heard in this shared community. Student Affair’s DEI+A requires the commitment of all members of the community to shoulder the weight of this work and make individual, departmental, and divisional changes to ensure we fully realize the Jesuit mission of justice and equity for all.
