Mission, Vision, and Values Statement

To become the inclusive community we aspire to be, we must treat each other equitably and with respect, creating an environment where no voices are silenced and all of us can thrive.

The Metropolitan School of the Arts (MSA) has established this Anti-Bias Action Committee with the primary aim of developing and implementing strategies to foster a culture of diversity, understanding, equity, anti-bias, and inclusion across the MSA community. MABAC welcomes input from MSA students, faculty, staff, families, and friends as we seek to accomplish those objectives.

Mission
Our mission is to intentionally foster diversity, understanding, equity, anti-bias, and inclusion in ever action and area of the organization in order to provide an environment of excellence in which each student, faculty, staff, family, and community member is able to nurture self and group identities while cultivating empathy and respect for differences; promote critical thinking skills about bias; and foster courage to stand up against discrimination.

Vision

MSA champions diversity, understanding, equity, anti-bias, and inclusion for and on behalf of its students, faculty, staff, families, and community members by supporting anti-bias education and practices, professional development, equity in hiring, and involvement of parents and other members of the MSA
community.


Values

MABAC supports and seeks to advance the following values:
• Diversity and inclusion of all people at all levels of the organization. Specifically, address how differences in power and possibilities align with social categories and identities, and how these differences distinguish individuals and groups in ways that privilege some and constrain others.

• Active leadership by supporting anti-bias education, professional development, nondiscrimination in hiring, and encouraging the involvement of students, faculty, staff, families, and community.

• Accountability for diversity, understanding, equity, anti-bias, and inclusion goals and objectives.

• Engagement with external stakeholder groups that support MSA’s community values and that help to ensure that diversity, understanding, equity, anti-bias, and inclusion initiatives, actions, and results are achieved.

Thank you for your interest in MSA!
