Katherine Facenda '23: The Smile Architect
Katherine’s foray into biology might seem an unlikely one for a future dentist.
In the Center for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Emmanuel College, we define diversity as the differences among people with respect to age, class, ethnicity, gender, physical and mental ability, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, religion, and many other aspects of human identity.
We celebrate the differences in all people, and we believe human beings are our best when we seek to learn from one another’s experiences.
The Center for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (CDEI) engages the Emmanuel College Community by providing programs and initiatives that celebrate diversity, affirm identity and promote authentic inclusion. We aim to empower students from underrepresented backgrounds through support and advocacy.
Consistent with Emmanuel College’s Mission, the Center for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is committed to social justice and works with the entire Emmanuel Community to ensure the engagement, inclusion, and empowerment of all students.
The Center offers events, programs, services and educational opportunities for the Emmanuel community to explore issues of diversity and equity. We also work to strengthen our connections with each other and the city of Boston.
We’ve collected valuable resources for First-Generation students, students of color, international students, students with disabilities, LGBTQ+ students, veterans or veteran-dependent students and students with immigrant/DACA status. You can also find links here to resources from our campus partners.
The Center advises the College’s multicultural clubs and organizations, developing programs, events, discussions and dialogues centered around current events and social justice issues in collaboration with students from those clubs.
It is the policy of Emmanuel College not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or the presence of any disability in the recruitment and employment of students, faculty and staff and the operation of any of its programs and activities, as specified by federal laws and regulations.
