“When I toured Mount Holyoke’s gorgeous campus one day in October, I couldn’t quite pin the student archetype. The student body seemed so much more fluid and dynamic than other places. And, I realized, I liked that – a lot. I could sense that the diversity on campus fueled students’ ingenuity, leadership, empowerment and passion for education. I was excited to learn from and connect with such a group.” -Cory Mahlstedt ’20

If a diverse, empowered campus community appeals to you like it did Cory, then we invite you to join us for our annual Focus on Diversity program October 24-25, 2020. This two-day virtual event is open to high school seniors who are students of color and/or have championed diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives in their communities and schools. During the program, you’ll:

  • Engage with current Mount Holyoke students, faculty, and staff
  • Learn about the College’s diversity and inclusion philosophy, which supports multiple identities through the lenses of social justice education, ally development, and identity exploration
  • Explore the many diversity resources available to our students
