Each initiative aligns with the charge of one of the three Inclusion groups at Cate:
Each of the four strategies structure the work of each initiative so that there is consistent, organized effort toward the achievement of Cate’s Inclusion goals.
As part of the ongoing work of the restructuring process, Cate’s three Inclusion teams completed a comprehensive Strategic Plan for Inclusion during the 2019-20 school year. The plan outlines three major initiatives for achieving measurable progress towards Cate’s Inclusion goals.
Transition Cate’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts from aspirational goals into structured, accountable processes that set the standard for belonging, well-being, and success for the entire community. This initiative is led by the Core Team, which is responsible for strategy, implementation, and accountability.
Foster a transformative student and community experience by creating and sustaining an equitable and inclusive campus environment so that all members of the Cate community are able to bring their whole selves, feel a genuine sense of belonging, and are able to achieve their greatest growth. This initiative is lead by the Inclusive Community Design Team (ICDT), which is responsible for DEI issues related to the residential, co-curricular, and community experiences.
Support and develop teaching practices and diverse curricula that will enable all teaching faculty to achieve the mission, goals, and model for inclusive teaching at Cate. This initiative is led by the Inclusive Teaching Design Team (ITDT), which is responsible for developing inclusive curricula and implementing culturally responsive teaching practices.
