Seminary Education Program

The Priests of the Sacred Hearts founder, Fr. Leo John Dehon, was committed to continuing Christs work of rebuilding our world into Gods kingdom of justice and love. With a strong passion for education and priesthood, Fr. Dehon and a dedicated band of men filled with vision and courage laid the foundation for the Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology.

Today, about a century later, we are the largest seminary in North America for second-career vocations, and continue to ground ourselves in the spiritual tradition of the Priests of the Sacred Heart and their founder.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
