Engaged Pluralism Initiative

The Engaged Pluralism Initiative is a campus-wide initiative dedicated to building communities of belonging, inclusion, and equity at the college.

  • We always do our work in groups of students, faculty, administrators and staff–⁠working together on collective projects, questions, problems and actions.
  • All are welcome; each of us is needed for building our community.
  • Only through engaging each other can we create the communities we wish to live in.
