About Us

Gateway's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion aspires to foster a sense of belonging by cultivating a welcoming, open, and collaborative environment. The DEI serves as an awareness spark for all members of the Gateway community by offering strategic educational programming, community partnerships, and co-curricular activities intended to encourage a sense of belonging, self-reflection, and personal growth.

Principles – Educate, Embrace, and Encourage
