Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion


Be the Change

At Marist, we widen the frame of how we see others and the world. We embrace different perspectives and lived experiences,  and bring diverse voices into the conversation. We ensure policies, programs, and initiatives support an environment where all feel welcome, valued, respected, and heard. 

The result? Our students, faculty, staff, and alumni thrive in our rapidly changing global community, and feel empowered to challenge societal norms.

black history month

Black History month is a time to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions and achievements of African Americans and Black people. It also acknowledges the suffering, challenges, and pain Black people have had to overcome. Marist's celebration of Black History Month is informed by understanding the historical and ongoing struggles faced by Black communities and appreciating their resilience and accomplishments in the face of challenges.
