Office of Intercultural Affairs

The Office of Intercultural Affairs helps to lead Stonehill College in creating both a diverse and inclusive community. We believe in the inherent dignity of each person and seek to affirm, honor and embrace the differences that shape a more robust living and learning community.


Diversity & Inclusion

"Diversity is being invited to the party; Inclusion is being asked to dance." We all have a part to play in fostering an inclusive campus. Some days, you will be the one challenging yourself to walk on the dance floor. Other days, you will be the one asking someone to dance with you.

First-Generation College Students

A widely recognized formal definition of a first-generation student is any student whose parents did not complete a four-year, bachelor's degree. We realize that any set of circumstances can cause a student to feel as though they identify as first-generation because their support system lacks knowledge of the college experience. The link above provides resources to learn more!

The Office of Intercultural Affairs contributes to the mission of the College by providing leadership and support in the College’s commitment to diversity. We provide academic, cultural, and personal support to students - including students of color and other underrepresented students populations on campus - through developing intellectual, social and leadership skills.

Throughout the year, The Office of Intercultural Affairs , in collaboration with student groups and academic departments, sponsors programs that raise awareness of diversity at Stonehill, in our community, and in our world. We do this by educating around concepts and themes, including but not limited issues impacting racial and ethnic groups; sexual orientation and identity; socioeconomic experiences; disability and ability; immigration; educational status; and much more.

The Office of Intercultural Affairs works closely across all areas of the college to develop and institutionalize a comprehensive approach to an intercultural education and experience.

Mission Statement

The mission of The Office of Intercultural Affairs at Stonehill is to contribute to the creation, influence, and sustainability of a community where the dignity of all people is respected and affirmed.

Vision Statement

Our vision is to promote a living, learning and working environment in which our individual differences are celebrated, respected, and embraced as an essential part of our Stonehill community.
