To support this Mission, Student Life will:

  • Develop a proactive division-wide strategy to enhance the cultural competence of our students and staff.
  • Evaluate practices and policies to ensure an educational and living environment that is anti-racist and free from bigotry and discrimination.
  • Serve as a resource to students of all identities throughout their Villanova experience.
  • Be mindful of campus and national trends and how they impact minoritized students during critical moments.
  • Engage in ongoing assessment of the educational and programmatic DEI needs of students and Student Life staff.
  • Plan and offer regular DEI and anti-racist trainings and educational opportunities for students and Student Life staff to anticipate and address needs.
  • Engage in ongoing dialogue and learning on issues of race and the intersectionality of race and identities as a Student Life staff.
