President George E. Martin, Ph.D. created the Systemic Racism Task Force in 2020 to respond to many inequalities spotlighted by recent events, including: the tragic killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Atatiana Jefferson, Eric Garner, and others by police; and the disparities in healthcare, income and wealth exposed by the pandemic. The Task Force is planning and implementing community events. Each event is designed to lead the St. Edward's community in considering ways we can create meaningful change — while supporting local and national efforts to end structural conditions that perpetuate inequality and injustice. We invite you to share written, oral or visual reflections that speak to facets of systemic racism that are important to you. You can also find previous event recordings and resources online.
Before counselors earn their license to practice, they must first invest in graduate school, professional supervision and training. For some who aspire to help others heal, these financial obstacles turn ambitions into impossibilities. James Baker MAC '20 addressed this challenge head-on with a gift to St. Edward's.
Now, Baker is making a difference in students' lives (and the communities they'll serve) with a $15,000 award that covers a variety of needs, from tuition support to specialized training. Baker's gift makes him a leader in creating educational access and equity. Learn more.
