Following the foundational Diversity Program in 2006 with co-administrators Robyn Teplitzky and Suzanne Hamlin-Smith, the Office of Inclusion, Equity & Diversity continues to advocate for safe spaces while embracing difference.
Hamden Hall earned the official designation, No Place for Hate, in 2020 by the Anti-Defamation League. Since that time, we continue to stand up for equity, inclusion, and acceptance as exhibited by our school-wide pledge and banner.
Each month, the Office of Inclusion, Equity & Diversity disseminates an educational communication titled Observances and Celebrations in honor of all U.S. holidays and observances throughout the year.
Faculty and students annually attend the NAIS Student Diversity Leadership Conference, a multiracial, multicultural gathering of student leaders from across the country and abroad.
The inaugural Walk Against Hate took place on October 16, 2022, and will be an annual tradition for the school in conjunction with the ADL. Participants gather on campus and walk to St. Thomas Church on Whitney Avenue.
Hamden Hall is proud to be among 63 schools across the nation to pilot the College Board's AP African American Studies course. The pilot program launched during the 2022-2023 school year under the leadership of Dr. Hill, who was instrumental in developing course content as a member of the College Board's Course Development Committee.
