Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Mission Statement

Special Olympics Villanova is deeply committed to representing and reflecting the unique experiences, perspectives and viewpoints of our athletes, coaches, committee members, and volunteers. As we think about diversity, equity, and inclusion, we aim to honor one another’s stories, be present for each other, and strive for empathic action in every moment. At our core is the idea that we demonstrate the deepest part of our humanity through interacting with each other and showing we care.
