Identity & Inclusion

Cura personalis calls us to care for the whole person. This cannot be accomplished without intentional work to identify and support the intersectional identities of all Zags (See explanation by Kimberlé Crenshaw). We stand in solidarity with our marginalized students and strive to provide equitable resources. The resources below only begin to provide various supports for all within our community to thrive. We also call on all members of our community to learn how to be truly present with all our members—these resources can support you in your learning and growth. If you cannot find a resource that connects to a specific identity, please contact CCP and we can help you find something that fits your needs.
