DEIB Statement
INDEX is comprised of a diverse group of schools, and we strive to honor and respect the diverse voices, roles, and perspectives of our members. During our time together, we expect that individuals will foster and promote a sense of belonging, appreciation, inclusion, and understanding, so that these diverse voices are heard and have an impact on our collective learning. It is our hope that this support and collaboration will be carried back to our member schools as well.
