OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION
The Upper Arlington Education Foundation and Alumni Association are aligned with and support the goals and plans of the Upper Arlington City School District. We provide meaningful opportunities for each and every student, and are proud to provide resources for programs and projects focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We value the unique experiences and backgrounds of our community of donors, fund advisors, staff, board members, alumni, volunteers, and school district employees as we work together to further our mission.
The Upper Arlington Education Foundation takes seriously the importance of students feeling a sense of belonging, safety, and inspiration to reach their full potential.
The Upper Arlington Education Foundation and Alumni Association will continue to:
Assess our own processes and policies, including grant-making, to ensure equity among students;
Intentionally recruit and develop a diverse board of trustees that reflects our values and beliefs. Members of the board will draw on their diverse backgrounds, skills, talents and perspectives to strengthen our ability to serve our mission;
Provide continued board and staff development opportunities in the area of diversity, equity, and inclusion that will allow us to continue to support the strategic vision of the School District;
Promote the tradition, pride and reputation of excellence of our school district while recognizing the historic lack of racial diversity among our alumni.
Ensure the Upper Arlington Alumni Association reflects inclusive practices where every alumni is encouraged to stay connected and engaged and affiliate groups are used to unite Golden Bears with shared interests and experiences.
