we seek justice and truth
At Delbarton, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Belonging form a foundational part of our identity as a Catholic and Benedictine community. We believe that here, we belong and offer a curriculum, programs and events that focus on community engagement and growth.
As a community, we are enriched and strengthened by our diversity. Every day, we are called to engage with and learn from students and adults of varied backgrounds to create a more authentic, dynamic learning environment inside and outside the classroom.
We know that our commitment to DEIB requires consistent review and intentional focus on growth and development. Read our Framework for Continued Growth to learn our plans and aspirations.
We staunchly affirm the dignity of each of our students, faculty, staff and families because we are all children of God and created in his image and likeness. We believe God has called his children to Delbarton, to form a community of justice, love and peace. When we proclaim that ‘here, we belong’, that ‘we’ includes all and excludes none.”
-Headmaster Fr. Michael Tidd, OSB
As a Benedictine community, we belong to an inclusive culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the diverse voices of our students, faculty and staff. Our Benedictine values call us to inclusion and collaborative inquiry that embrace the multiple perspectives among all members of the community. When we foster inclusivity and universality in all dimensions of Delbarton life, we seek to ensure that members of our community have not just a foundational respect for others, but a deep and sincere understanding of the true interconnectedness of our global human family.
