When I graduated from high school, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the medical field. I was interested in becoming a medical technologist, and heard that Mount Union had an outstanding medical technology program.

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion provides a wide range of services and programs to assist the Mount Union community and its international students. The office and is open from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. daily and consists of a full-time director, one assistant director and a support staff person.
The purpose of this office is to serve as an advocate for the international students and to educate our community about other cultures and the interdependence of our world. These aims are accomplished through programs, presentations, and referrals.
Goals specific to international students include assisting them in adapting to and integrating into the American culture, the American educational system and the Mount Union community. To meet these goals, the office staff advises international students on cultural adjustment, academic and financial concerns, and personal issues. This office also coordinates the Community Friend Program and organizes various activities to meet the needs of international students.
