The RISE committee—formerly known as the Supporting a Diverse Community (SDC) committee—was created to help Crossroads implement many of the recommendations in the Assessment of Inclusivity and Multiculturalism (AIM) report.
The committee strives to promote meaningful conversations around issues of diversity and inclusion as well as take action steps to advance those goals at Crossroads. It is open to all members of the School community who are interested in supporting and improving inclusion on campus.
The committee members are:
- Trustees: Nicole Hoegl, Nada Kirkpatrick
