Center for Student Diversity
The Center for Student Diversity was established to aid Mount St. Mary's University in its efforts of fostering inclusion, collaboration, and relationship building across campus. The Center provides academic, social, and transitional support in addition to programming, leadership training and inclusive workshops for ALL students and promotes exchange and dialogue between individuals of diverse backgrounds.
The Center for Student Diversity oversees the intercultural development, the Horning Fellowship, student support programs (including Third Century Scholars program and the American Indian program), and cultural programs. The office also supports cultural organizations, conducts diversity awareness programs, assesses the needs and climate of diverse groups and advocates on behalf of underrepresented students.
