As part of the commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, this Student Diversity Conference, provides a safe space for leadership, professional development, and networking for people of color and allies of all backgrounds in independent schools. It equips students with knowledge, skills, and experiences to improve and enhance the interracial, inter-ethnic, and intercultural climate in their schools. We hope to create 9th-12th grade leaders who will be catalysts for change in the area of social justice and equity on their campuses.
Why you should go to Rome. (or Why You Should Go Back If You’ve Already Been) Rome, as they say, is an education. The deeper one goes, the more rewarding the results. It has been sacked numerous times; it has fallen into ruins; it has been reborn. And through it all it has been celebrated--and imitated--like no other place on earth. A trip to the Eternal City makes a specific kind of demand on the traveler: in order to be fully enjoyed Rome has to be explored from beneath its surface, both historically and often quite literally. In a fast-paced, visually-based presentation, we will consider the many levels of art and architecture that make up Rome's profound and unparalleled story. My intended audience is both first-time and repeat travelers, or anyone with an interest in the subject.
