We are guided by the Quaker ideals of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship. We strive to be a purposefully inclusive community that reflects the racial, ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic, and religious diversity of our city and our region. Educators at Friends are expected to model and foster the habits of mind we believe are essential to an outstanding education: creativity, curiosity, empathy, reflection, and resilience.

The importance we place in this position derives from our belief that an outstanding 21st Century education can only take place within an inclusive school setting characterized by both demographic diversity and a shared valuing, appreciation, and embrace of difference in all its forms. As a Quaker school, we have an explicit and enduring mandate to seek greater equity and justice within and beyond our community.

This research leads to the development of an area of particular focus for diversity-related programming each year. * Serves as advisor to the Admission Committee in each division as well as the school's Financial Aid Committee. * Assists in the recruitment, hiring and retention of new faculty and staff, interviewing all candidates for full-time positions at the school, engaging in outreach with local universities, churches, schools, and businesses to expand hiring pools, and contributing to the new teachers' mentoring program. * Serves as a co-clerk of the Equity and Inclusion Committee, and as a member of the Board's Diversity Committee, working to implement and monitor the goals of the Board of Trustees' Diversity Plan. * Works with the Parents' Association and the Alumni Board to encourage diverse participation in parent and alumni activities. * Partners with the Admission Office to enhance recruitment of a diverse student body * Works with the Development Office to support the stewardship of scholarship programs.
