Diversity & Equity

Graduating seniors of Detroit Catholic Central are formed over their four years in the Basilian tradition of goodness, discipline, and knowledge. Diversity and equity are woven into the full Catholic Central experience, providing students with opportunities to better know themselves and their fellow Shamrocks. Catholic values, combined with our Basilian tradition, advance mutual respect and brotherhood among students.

At Catholic Central, our responsibility for forming young men in excellence is inseparable from our dedication to diversity and equity. Catholic Central continues a purposeful effort to increase diversity and access, ensuring that our school is a welcoming community for families of all backgrounds, with a particular emphasis on increasing racial diversity among our incoming students. 

Renewed Commitment

Under the leadership of Director of Community Engagement and Diversity Kevin Glenn, Catholic Central embarked on a renewed commitment to diversity and equity in fall 2021. The Diversity Equity Task Force was formed, composed of key faculty and staff, to review the full Catholic Central experience. Catholic Central also partners with The Simmons Advantage, a group providing training and in-depth reviews of diversity and equitable initiatives to schools and organizations around the country.

Diversity Task Force Mission Statement
Catholic Central prepares our students to become productive, faith-filled members of society by providing competitive, equitable opportunities and support for individuals of diverse backgrounds.
