Announcing the Magis HBCU College Tour

The Magis Center for Equity and Inclusion is pleased to announce we will be taking nine amazing students on the inaugural Magis Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) College Tour. From April 18–22, 2022, we will visit colleges and universities in Atlanta, including Spelman, Morehouse, and Clark Atlanta. This college tour is an important opportunity for our students who identify as Black and African American to witness and be exposed to a predominantly Black college and university experience and is designed to encourage, support and motivate students to pursue HBCU post-secondary education. It will be led by Mr. Brian Davis, Associate Director of Equity and Inclusion, and Dr. Tasia Davis, Dean of Students.

LGBTQ+ Affinity Events

The LGBTQ+ Affinity Group is organizing two upcoming events that are open to the SI community. 

  • Screening of Moonlight: LGBTQ+ Affinity in conjunction with Magis Movie Days is offering a screening of Moonlight on Tuesday, March 15, after school. Magis Movie Days uses film to hold constructive conversation about social identities to promote greater cultural competence and cultural exchange. All are welcome to attend. 
  • LGBTQ+ Alumni Panel: On April 27, there will be an SI LGBTQ+ Alumni Panel speaking from 5:30-7p.m. in the Carlin Commons. This panel will be moderated by moderators Emily Shick and Connor Geraghty.
Faculty and Staff Inclusivity and Belonging Survey

The DEIB Task Force has developed an instrument to measure faculty and staff belonging. This survey will be administered in the coming weeks, and we hope the data gathered from it will inform our community's efforts to create an equitable, welcoming, and inclusive working and learning environment and build upon our existing successes. Specifically, we aim to:

  • Assess and measure feelings of inclusivity and belonging among faculty and staff
  • Identify successful efforts that help create an environment that fully upholds the values and the principles embodied in our Mission and Catholic, Ignatian identity
  • Identify the challenges that negatively impact community members’ sense of belonging, both individually and collectively
  • Develop strategic initiatives to support retention of BIPOC faculty, staff and administrators
