A Message From Our Chief Diversity Officer


The Committee on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is a committee that will actively engage our faculty, staff and students to explore diversity and equity issues as it relates to our Fontbonne community. The committee will work to create and sustain an anti-racist/anti-discrimination environment that promotes a positive attitude toward the work of diversity, equity and inclusion on all our campuses and wherever the university does its work – from classrooms, laboratories, libraries, practice fields to administrative office and performance venues.
