What Makes Moses Brown Unique?
Hands Up
Moses Brown School
An independent Nursery-12th grade Quaker day school, located in a small New England city (Providence, RI)
Outcomes for Today's Session
How to make a well-supported case for raising scholarship for diversity in your school
Diversity's contribution to academic rigor, world readiness


How to craft institutionally specific cases for need

Demographic Recommendation

The focus on the child is lost to moral arguments among adults about political agendas

Fundraising from this view is paternalistic: Us vs. Them

We ignore diversity work’s significant contribution to emerging educational trends

A diverse community fosters acceptance and reduces the likelihood that students will develop unconscious biases.

Diversity makes us smarter

Being surrounded by differing perspectives builds cultural literacy, an appreciation for multiple perspectives, and the ability to collaborate with those different from themselves- all skills essential for successful citizenship in a globally connected community.
Questions or Comments so far?
Why is a diverse community essential fuel at our school?

Diversity of perspectives supports our our focus on 21st Century skills

We are a discourse-centered community

The Individual Argument For Scholarship
It's something we can do for individual people, transforming lives, giving folks a chance or a step up


A belief in the transformative nature of education underlies our Quaker philosophy
The Institutional Argument For Scholarship
Financial Sustainability (i.e. without scholarship we'll go out of business)
35% increase in scholarship requests since 2008
Moses Brown is 92% tuition-dependent


Educational Excellence
A more talented and diverse student body strengthens the educational experience for ALL students, nurturing essential skills.
Mountains of research (Fortune magazine, Scientific American, IBM, etc.) demonstrate the broadest perspectives result in the highest functioning teams.

Who Are We?
The Research to Prove it
"When disagreement comes from a socially different person, we are prompted to work harder. Diversity jolts us into cognitive action in ways that homogeneity simply does not."

"When members of a group notice that they are socially different from one another... They anticipate differences of opinion and perspective."

"This is how diversity works: by promoting hard work and creativity; by encouraging the consideration of alternatives even before any interpersonal interaction takes place."

"How Diversity makes Us Smarter" Scientific American, Sept. 16, 2014
We should bring diversity into our community because it's the right thing to do.

Current power structures in America make it harder for some communities to access resources such as high quality education. We need to level this playing field.

We are helping others by bringing them into our community.
