We strive to provide an atmosphere that promotes the academic, social, and personal development of students from a variety of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.
The Solidarity Initiative
Solidarity is an action on behalf of the one human family, calling all of us to help overcome the divisions in our world. The DeSales Solidarity Initiative is to provide students, faculty, and staff with a new understanding of this human family, while encouraging them to “be who they are and be that well.” We inspire mutual respect, the development of friendships, and learning about the realities of each other’s lives through compassion and patience. We commit to fostering the “wholistic” growth of the DeSales community by opening a dialogue and investing in the good of one’s neighbor.
Goals of the Solidarity Office:
welcome and accept all to DeSales
welcome, recognize, and respect cultural differences among the student body
provide a comfortable environment where differences are met with love
highlight those who have paved the path to equality
teach one how to accept/love themselves while continuing their journey to “wholistic” growth
