Upper School Diversity
Diversity, Equity, and Belonging are essential to life in the Upper School.
We can have the most advanced curriculum, the best programs, and the most engaging classes, but if members of our student body do not feel as though they belong to this community, our work is that much more difficult. For that reason, the Office of Global Initiatives, Equity & Belonging works tirelessly with our student advocacy groups to plan intentional programs that speak to every student, every day, everywhere.
Creating Awareness, Understanding, and Social Equity
The Upper School is fortunate to have passionate student leaders in the field of DEB work who form the umbrella organization, CAUSE (Creating Awareness, Understanding, and Social Equity). CAUSE and its student-led organization ensure diversity, equity, and belonging programming and education is occurring in the Upper School and on our campus.
CAUSE supports the Miami Country Day School mission to empower our students to be their authentic selves, to celebrate the differences that make us unique, and to honor the bonds that make us one community, every day, everywhere, as developing Global Citizens. CAUSE models and creates forums for difficult, yet respectful dialog, always remembering that through differences we find understanding. Advocacy groups include:
Black Student Union, Students of Color Association, Asian Student Association, Pan-Latin American Network, Gender & Sexuality Alliance, Girl Up, Best Buddies, Zoe’s Dolls, Indigenous Advocates Association, Jewish Student Union, Christian, Student Union, Muslim Student Union
