Support for Diversity
Share |

No aspect of the AIMS mission is more important than its effort to help member schools sustain diverse communities and cultures. By any measure, the commitment of AIMS schools to many kinds of diversity runs deep: For the 2010-2011 academic year, people of color represented 27.4% of students, 14.4% of teachers, 11.6% of administrators, and 12.5% of trustees. Schools are also committed to socio-economic diversity: 24% of students in AIMS schools are awarded financial assistance, totaling approximately $114,000,000. Diversity in AIMS schools includes a strong commitment to students with diverse learning styles and aptitudes.

The AIMS Diversity Statement articulates the association's official position and rationale for the vital importance of diversity in our schools. For over twenty years, Making Schools Safe has attracted students, teachers, and administrators to hear speakers about LGBT issues, and to compare experiences at their schools. In the fall of 2013 AIMS celebrated the first Annual Diversity Conference in which faculty and administrators gathered to deepen their understanding of racial and ethnic matters. The AIMS Job Fair supports schools in their efforts to attract and retain a diverse corps of teachers and administrators. And each year, AIMS includes speakers on diversity topics among its many professional development offerings.
