Diversity & Inclusion

DeSales strives to provide an atmosphere that promotes the academic, social, and personal development of students from a variety of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. In that endeavor, the University operates a Solidarity Office to ensure and protect these practices.

Solidarity Initiative
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.”
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 holistic growth of the DeSales community by opening a dialogue and investing in the good of one’s neighbor. Thank you to Karl Holl '15 for his work on this video with the help of Cody Mikol, Shawn Gies, and Justin Mahalsky.

The DeSales Solidarity Office has a multi-faceted mission aimed to maintain a vibrant and diverse student body.

It welcomes and accepts all to DeSales:

  • recognizes and respects cultural differences among the student body;
  • provides a comfortable environment where differences are met with love;
  • highlights those who have paved the path to equality;
  • educates students on how to accept and love themselves while continuing their journey to holistic growth.
