Accepted students who are interested in learning more about diversity at Stonehill are invited to participate in our Intercultural Experience Program. Each participant will be matched with a Big Sibling from the Advocates for a Brighter Stonehill Leadership Program who will serve as a mentor and guide for them as they begin their journey at Stonehill. Students participate in workshops, discussion groups, fun social activities, and meet their Big Sibling. In these sessions, we discuss issues of diversity, get to know other students from diverse communities and experiences, and prepare for our own leadership at Stonehill College.
This program is open to all incoming first-year students, International students, and transfer students who are interested in meeting others from diverse backgrounds.
Frequently Asked Questions
There are no additional costs related to IXP.
Yes! We have had a number of first-year commuter students attend the program.
At the Intercultural Experience Program, we talk openly about race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, class, accessibility and many other issues that make us who we are. Our student leaders – the Big Siblings – have all gone through extensive training and workshops to learn how to be effective allies to many different communities, including but not limited to the LGBTQ+ community and communities of color. And, we strive to create both a safe and brave environment for all the participants!
