Diversity, Equity and Inclusion school council

Formally, the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council is an open group of administrators, faculty members and staff, which meets regularly to share best practices, celebrate the diversity of our community, and advise the administrative team on steps that could be taken to advance DEI efforts at all levels of the institution.

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion shares perspectives and resources to all families weekly through the school’s “This Week at Liggett” newsletter, hosts and coordinates community programming, and, recently, is working on implementing  DEI professional development for faculty and staff. 

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion student groups

4A Club

The 4A club aims to create a safe space for African Americans at University Liggett School, reduce racial aggression and microaggression through education, and to give back to the community. 4A achieves these goals through school presentations and need-based and charitable fundraising.

SPECTRUM Club

Spectrum actively supports the needs of the LGBTQA and ally community at University Liggett School and beyond. In addition to serving as an LGBTQA conversation and advocacy group, Spectrum extends its mission into the community with activities including participation in the Focus Hope Walk and Grosse Pointe Pride march, visits to Affirmations in Ferndale, and work with the Ruth Frank Home for Girls. 

Women's Awareness Club (WAC)

WAC Breast Cancer Awareness

Women's Awareness Club provides a like-minded space for students to express feelings on gender-based issues in the community. WAC uses club time to educate its members and others on topics like intersectional feminism, period stigma in schools, and sexism in the workplace. Members decorate the school for Women’s History Month, and fundraises and volunteers for several women-oriented causes and organizations.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Alumni groups

The 4A Alumni Association was formed in early 2020 with the goal of creating fun and new ways to connect our African American alumni with each other and with the school.
