What is CORE?

CORE is the leadership development program offered by the Office of Social Justice at Mount St. Mary’s. The CORE Leaders are undergraduate students who are selected and trained to facilitate social justice and service experiences on campus, in our local community, and across the country. These dynamic students are passionate about issues of social justice, equity, and an active response to a call to serve.
