  • Cultural Competency:  Faculty are expected to demonstrate respect for diversity of identities and experiences, an orientation toward equity and inclusion, and cultural competency in all aspects of Academy life.

  • Advising: Faculty are expected to serve as mentors to student advisees throughout students’ time at Exeter.  The adviser is the main liaison between an advisee’s family/guardian and the Academy.
