Our Core Values And DEAI+AR Statement
Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, Inclusion and Anti-Racism
The Switzer Learning Center honors diversity which brings richness to our collective human experiences. We are committed to disarming racism and advancing equity by embracing diversity, ensuring accessibility and implementing inclusionary practices as part of our strategic priorities to fulfill our mission to educate diverse minds, build social confidence, and create a path to independence.
We will continually strive to build a safe and welcoming environment where staff, students, board members, and community stakeholders feel valued for their unique perspectives and backgrounds. Switzer Learning Center will actively participate in an ongoing commitment to DEIA+AR in our instructional design, pedagogical methods, and curricular and academic programming. Our core values will guide and impact all the decisions the organization makes (internal and external) to ensure that we are choosing a path toward organizational transformation.
