Celebrating Diversity

Supporting a diverse and inclusive environment is the responsibility of everyone at the College, and our entire community collaborates to provide opportunities for students to engage in education, activism and empowerment. We’ve developed innovative programs, teaching practices and student leadership experiences that create a culture of belonging.

Divercity is an annual, student-led cultural festival that highlights and celebrates the diversity of our Stonehill Community.

Intercultural Affairs

The Office of Intercultural Affairs contributes to the creation, influence and sustainability of a community where the dignity of all people is respected and affirmed. Intercultural Affairs hosts a variety of diversity and inclusion events such as heritage month celebrations, training and workshops, and the DiverCity Festival – the campus' largest cultural showcase. They also support many student leadership and engagement opportunities such as Advocates for a Brighter Stonehill, the Intercultural Experience Program, and identity-based dialogue groups.

Human Development

Our commitment to diversity inclusion means more than getting you ready for a job in a diverse workplace. We believe that experiencing a diversity of persons and opinions is part of your human development in a global culture.

Whatever path you take, your time at Stonehill will in many ways be an immersion in diversity that promotes this growth.
