I chose to attend Mount Union because of the small class sizes and the one-on-one attention students receive from professors. At the University, you aren’t just a number. Professors really care about you and your progress in and outside of the classroom. They also are really approachable and personable.

Office of Diversity and Inclusion

Our Guiding Principle:

"We become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams."   - Former President Jimmy Carter

Our Objectives:

The objective for the Office of Diversity and Inclusion is to serve as a resource for all students of color, including, but not limited to African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Native-Americans.  Our office provides assistance for academic, social, cultural, and personal well-being.  The office works cooperatively with faculty, staff and administrators to assist students in their pursuit of academic excellence at Mount Union. 

Mount Union believes that an appreciation of diversity among campus constituencies creates a welcoming campus environment that is crucial to the success of all our students.  Creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for our students is at the core of beliefs.
