D.I.V.E.R.S.I.T.Y at Proctor

Proctor is committed to bringing cultural awareness to our community. With a team of diverse members, we seek to actively promote an atmosphere of acceptance and respect throughout the school and larger community that welcomes diversity; be it age, gender, culture, ethnicity, religion, race, or sexual orientation. Our mission is to lead the Proctor Community in becoming a place of acceptance and respect for all.

The DIVERSITY committee meets every Tuesday evening at 5:30 pm during dinner in the Brown Dining Commons.

Diversity Team

List of 2 members.

Black lives, white lives...doesn't really matter.
Asian lives, latino/latina lives we're all like alabaster.
Stereotypes ride the airways like ships did to the new world.
Stolen identities.
 
 
To rise above these should be the motive.
Because being treated as a less than is more like being treated like trash.
We shouldn't be scared to discuss these topics..but should approach and grab them by their horns.
Wrestle and subdue them, humbly learn and educate, for futures where no one suffocates.
The cries of people in worst situations should cut clear, to empathize and be held nearer than iPhones.
 
 
Don't flow in the current aimlessly, don't let your love run dry.
Use your situation to make better.
Please don't look and sigh.
Because everyone has a story and that story is unique, no matter the color injustice cuts deep.
Let us come together to rise above, to rise above we must.
