diversity and unity

At MVNU, we believe that embracing and celebrating diversity brings us all closer together.

Our campus community benefits from the diversity of students, staff, and faculty. We are a community of individuals who seek to learn from, and about, one another. Diversity is expressed through racial, ethnic, age, ability, geographic, gender, cultural, and socioeconomic differences among the campus community.

We take our responsibility to offer educational and professional opportunities equitably to all qualified persons seriously. Through our curriculum, programs, and services, we seek to provide understanding and supportive interaction among diverse population groups, respecting individuals’ personal values and ideals.

The Office of Intercultural Life serves AIM students (American students of color, International students, and Missionary kids) through a variety of programs and events, including:
 
Additionally, the Office of Intercultural Life supports and celebrates a variety of student organizations and campus events, including:
 
  • Alliance for Black Student Leadership

  • Soul Festival
  • Women's History Month

C.O.R.E. Values

  • Curiosity & Courage: Personal responsibility for getting to know one another and to be understood.
  • Openness & Otherness: Holding multiple perspectives simultaneously and valuing them all.
  • Respect & Reciprocity: Recognition of personal diversity and the fact that all peoples have equal value and merit.
  • Equity & Empathy: Dispersion of power and equality of opportunity.

“This environment continually pushes and helps me grow."
