The Way of Proceeding: Standards and Benchmarks for Jesuit Schools in the 21st Century, which assists Jesuit schools in the sponsorship review process, includes a newly revised section that addresses Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (see below).
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 former SLUH President David Laughlin (5:56), Board Member Eric Clark '83 (17:58), and former Assistant Director of Diversity Danielle Harrison (38:16).

Brendan Underwood '16 spoke at the 2015 Ignatian Family Teach-In in Washington, D.C. The title of his talk was "My Awakening to Social Justice and Racial Issues."
To provide context for the unrest in Ferguson that followed the killing of Mike Brown, Dr. Terry Jones '59 spoke to SLUH students and faculty on November 19, 2014, about the history of racial inequity in education and housing in the St. Louis region.
"SLUH teachers respect the differences in students' diverse personalities, ways of learning, cultures, and temperament. The school is a place where students experience exponential personal growth, develop life-long friendships, and receive one of the best college preparatory educations in the country.'"
