175th Anniversary | Diversity and Inclusion

In 1846, Mount Union founder Orville Nelson Hartshorn described the institution as a place where, “…men and women could be educated with equal opportunity, where science would parallel the humanities, where laboratory and experimental subjects would receive proper emphasis, and where there would be no distinction due to race, color, sex or position.” This foundation on which Mount Union was built still rings true today. 

Nearly two centuries after Hartshorn founded the Select School, Mount Union’s commitment to advancing efforts in diversity and inclusion remain steadfast. Over the years, student organizations, campus events, and classroom learning have all highlighted the growth of the institution as a place that is not only welcoming to students from all backgrounds, but is also a place where they can thrive.
