In November 2018, we reflected upon the many ways Stevens brings our mission and diversity statements to life by participating in a survey called the Assessment of Inclusivity and Multiculturalism (AIM), provided by the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). The survey was offered to all of the adults in our community -- families, faculty and staff, and trustees -- as well as members of the last five graduating classes. The survey was also given to students in the third through eighth grades during the school day.
From March to August of 2019, through ongoing collaboration between AIM Steering Committee members, faculty and staff and the Leadership Team, an action plan was created in response to the data focused on seven strategic goals to achieve over the next three years. These goals are comprised of SEVEN S.T.R.I.D.E.S. (Systemically Tracking and Realizing Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Strategies).
