School Information
St. John’s College (SJC) is a community dedicated to liberal education. Such education seeks to free men and women from the tyrannies of unexamined opinions and inherited prejudices. It also endeavors to enable them to make intelligent, free choices concerning the ends and means of both public and private life. At St. John’s, freedom is pursued mainly through thoughtful conversation about great books of the Western tradition. The books that are at the heart of learning at St. John's stand among the original sources of our intellectual tradition. They are timeless and timely; they not only illuminate the persisting questions of human existence, but also have great relevance to contemporary problems. They change our minds, move our hearts, and touch our spirits.
General Information
St. John's College commissioned a task force to research the status of diversity and inclusion on campus. It found lower rates of satisfaction from BIPOC students than white students. It also found that students largely sought more conversations on diversity and inclusion in the classroom. It appears no concrete actions have been taken at this stage. Additionally, there is no evidence St. Johns requires critical race theory-related training for its faculty or students.

Actions Taken

  • St. John's established the "Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion" to determine the status of diversity and inclusion on campus and ways to improve. This task force released a report in 2021 finding lower rates of satisfaction from "BIPOC" students and a desire "to have deeper and more honest conversations around issues related to diversity and inclusion..." The task force notes that it may not be able to "fix a problem whose cause may be largely rooted in systemic social issues..."
