Presidio students are a vibrant and inclusive community, immersed in their shared passion to create a flourishing future for all.
Diversity and Anti-Racism
At Presidio Graduate School, we believe that diversity, creativity, and commitment are the foundations of a successful and inclusive organization. These are the principles that guide Presidio Graduate School, and support our dedication to fostering long-lasting communities that enable individual and community transformation. We founded our school on the premise that an academic community must support and nurture students of all races, gender identities, sexual orientations, and socio-economic backgrounds to provide a truly effective and transformative education. Further, we believe that freedom of thought and the open exchange of ideas are paramount for building an inclusive and productive learning environment, which can only thrive with the practice of compassion and mutual respect.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Student Advisory Committee
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Student Advisory Committee (DEISAC) is a student club established to offer the student perspective on Presidio’s ongoing work to improve and expand efforts to continuously improve diversity, equity, and inclusion within the Presidio Graduate School community.
DEISAC is committed to supporting the important ongoing work of our graduate community to dismantle oppressive systems that harm people and our planet. As our community continues to cope with ongoing climate change, a global pandemic, a watershed in liberation movements (especially for black, trans, and working-class people), we look to each other in solidarity and hope as a community. The DEISAC recognizes that systemic change takes time, energy, and accountability. We seek to balance clear intentions with transparent outcomes, whatever they may be.
DEISAC aims to help build an increasingly diverse community of students, alumni, faculty, staff, and partners at Presidio that equitably includes underrepresented voices, promotes anti-oppression as fundamental to sustainability, creates brave spaces for difficult conversations, and continues its history as a business school driving transformational change.
DEISAC members facilitate a student event series, community workshops, group and 1:1 conversations, and resource groups. Members are also available to speak with prospective and new students about diversity, equity, and inclusion. Read about the DEISAC’s most recent student-written DEI goals for 2020-21.
