The Bolles Way: Pursuing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion with Intention

Thank you for investing your time today in what we think is one of the single most important and foundational qualities of the Bolles community – our mission to deliver a Bolles experience that is safe, inclusive and diverse. The School’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts are not just critical to a successful Bolles future. They define us today and set us apart as an institution that adapts to change, embraces multiplicity and recognizes the strength of its unique togetherness. The Bolles School is a community distinguished by its rich differences – we are a dedicated, confident community of:

  • Students, faculty and families from all over the world
  • People with varied backgrounds and distinct cultural experiences
  • And individuals with unique strengths, interests and definitions of themselves.

This is what #BollesTogether looks like on paper. But how that plays out in real, every day life here at Bolles is up to us. We have work to do if we are to raise our own bar. And your perspective and experience are exceedingly important to this work. We are fortunate to be well equipped with an institutional history of changemaking, an existing culturally diverse community and a desire to refine our practices. These strengths give us an incredible platform from which to pursue excellence in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion on all campuses. We invite you to take a closer look at the many initiatives and goals. This is exciting work and we look forward to sharing meaningful dialogue as we work together toward even greater heights of diversity, inclusion and understanding. #BollesTogether
