While USM has a PK-12 Director of Equity and Student Success, Dr. Gina Haughton, our work in justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) is a shared responsibility by everyone in our community. We believe cultural competency is a requirement for every administrator, faculty, and staff member, and our JEDI work is reflected throughout our USM guiding principles.

University School of Milwaukee believes that, in order to develop students as learners, leaders, and citizens, we must foster an equitable and inclusive community for students, their families, and our administration, faculty, and staff. USM embraces diversity in all of these various forms, including race, ethnicity, national origin, socioeconomic status, religion, sexual orientation, ability, gender, and age.

"JEDI is all about belonging. Acknowledging and celebrating the fact that everyone brings their own lens and experiences to our school community only makes us a strong USM. Our students will become the global leaders of the future, and our commitment to preparing them for that work begins now."
