BGSP Non-Discrimination Policy
The Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis admits students of any race, color, national origin, ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, and employment status to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, ethnic origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, disability, age, or employment status in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and other School-administered programs.
Anti-Racism Committee Mission Statement
The Anti-Racism Committee of the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis unequivocally condemns the state-sanctioned violent oppression of Black and Indigenous People of Color that was built into the foundation of this country and continues today, sustaining the anti-Black racism and grave racial disparities embedded in all aspects of American society. As a committee, we are committed to uncovering and dismantling systems of oppression harmful to all marginalized identities, most specifically at BGSP.
We acknowledge that our own discipline has been historically influenced by and used to promote racist ideas, has reflected oppressive structures, and has included practices that are harmful to all people, but especially to people of color. These ideas and practices are antithetical to the School’s mission to understand humanity and to promote emotional growth. To this end, we are committed to working to change social contexts to foster the full development of each individual to their full potential.
