Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Sweet Briar is committed to building a community where every person can find a home and to taking a hard look at the systems on campus and in our nation that make building such a community difficult. In June 2020, President Meredith Woo created a Presidential Working Group on Diversity and Inclusion and charged them to develop and implement an action plan to help Sweet Briar be a place where discrimination is not tolerated. You’ll find information about their membership and their work on this site. We hope you’ll take a moment to read about that work and to offer your own suggestions.

We’ve also collected resources about multicultural student life at Sweet Briar and information about the College’s history that we hope you will find informative and illustrative.

On July 9, 2020, Sweet Briar hosted a virtual town hall on the subject of diversity, equity and inclusion. You can review a recording of that town hall.
