Diversity At RVC

Navigating and celebrating difference is a skill, like empathy or forgiveness, that can be learned and developed. In our diverse society, learning to work across differences broadens our horizons and opens up possibilities. 

RVC strives to create a diverse and inclusive learning community. Our Diversity & Inclusion Committee meets monthly to share knowledge and work on issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion at our school.
