Our mission is to create a school climate in which equity and inclusion are shared and celebrated guiding values for SLUH’s Board of Trustees, administration, teachers, staff, and students.
Inspired by Pedro Arrupe’s call for students of Jesuit schools to become men and women for and with others, we seek to train men who will cross barriers created by society’s ideas about race, gender, class, and sexuality in order to build God’s kingdom of peace and justice.
Our Ignatian value of cura personalis grounds our efforts to make our school accessible to all students who can benefit from our program, particularly those from groups that have historically faced limited access to the high quality educational experience we offer.
At the 2016 Jesuit Schools Network Colloquium, three members of the SLUH community spoke at a session entitled "Compassion and Race." The featured speakers are SLUH President David Laughlin (5:56), Board Member Eric Clark (17:58), and Assistant Director of Diversity Danielle Harrison (38:16).

"Men for Others is the most impressive part of a SLUH education. I was relieved and encouraged by the environment that my son was in, especially during times like the unrest in Ferguson. It called to mind the words of Dr. King, who said, 'The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in times of comfort and convenience, but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy.'"
