Find Yourself in Our Community
"If leadership requires a fired-up sense of purpose and imagination, it also demands a profound connection to the society to be led." — George Takei
Whether you are new to campus or are looking for a different perspective, we'll help you connect with communities that share your experience and honor your story. Each year, St. Edward's hosts several traditions and opportunities that embrace inclusivity, diversity, social justice and community empowerment.
Diversity and Inclusion closely advises five sponsored organizations:
- Asian Student Association
- Black Student Alliance
- Hilltop Student Veterans Association
- Latino Student Leaders Organization
From identity-based organizations like African Students Organization and Electric Lady Coalition to groups dedicated to specific causes in the world like the It's On Us Campaign or Monarchs on the Hilltop, our campus has over 100 groups where you can find your home.
Equity and Justice Council
Equity and Justice Council is a chartered student organization that plans and hosts campus events that seek to create dialogue, celebrate our histories, and bring communities together.
- Peer Education Facilitators
- Community Outreach Organization
- Retreats and Conferences Planning
- Excursions and Experiential Learning Opportunities
Each year, the Equity and Justice Council recruits interns to help with event staffing, program planning, and social justice and diversity training. Interns are selected at the beginning of each academic year.
Have an idea for a campus event or student field trip and need financial support to make it happen? Interested in attending a conference and want to get a group together for the event?
The Inclusive Excellence Grant might be your solution. Each year, students can apply for funding through the Inclusive Excellence Grant to help increase our campus knowledge on issues related to diversity, community empowerment, social justice and anti-oppression opportunities.
