Social Justice

Social justice is a fundamental component of the CSW mission and curriculum, as we seek to cultivate culturally-aware, global citizens. In addition to our Social Justice Requirement—the first of its kind in the country—there are countless social justice-focused affinity groups, clubs, and organizations to get involved with. The school also hosts a number of annual community-wide events meant to educate, inspire, and build awareness.

DEI Headlines

"I care deeply about helping CSW to be an equitable and informed community."

"I chose to join the IDEA Committee because I care deeply about helping CSW to be an equitable and informed community. I feel that as a white person, it is my responsibility to put in the personal and actionable work towards dismantling white supremacy... In a community that prides itself on its dedication to social justice, I believe it is imperative that our actions match our intentions."
