Diversity Services

Diversity Services provides leadership in the promotion of cultural diversity at all levels of the college and the community.

Our purpose is to sustain an environment where relationships among people will foster inclusive, equitable experiences for learning, working and living. The historical focus remains that of serving as an ally to people of color, racial/ethnic under-represented groups and protected class* populations. While academic achievement is of primary importance, educational programs and co-curricular events provide students the opportunity to socialize and interact with peers and community role models who visit campus, as well as hear from national and local speakers on a variety of themes and strategies for addressing specific issues on inclusion, diversity, and international relations. Students are encouraged to engage in these experiences of diversity of ideas, thoughts and perspectives both in and out of the classroom.

The Ann Felton Multicultural Center located on the first floor of Ferrante Hall, provides a welcoming and supportive atmosphere for students to come together to share their cross-cultural experiences. The Center features an art gallery, and an environment conducive to sharing of diverse cultural experiences.
