MCLA Diversity Statement

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA) is committed to creating a campus climate, as well as a culture that values, represents, and honors diversity in our society. We actively endeavor to recruit and retain diverse students, faculty, and staff.

MCLA fosters meaningful dialogue both in and out of the classroom in order to encourage critical awareness and respect for similarities and differences. MCLA’s inclusive education and informed pedagogy reflect and draw from the knowledge and empowerment of all individuals and the diverse groups that make up our college community.

MCLA strives to integrate topics of social, cultural, and physical diversity in the curricular, co-curricular, residential, and work life of the MCLA community. In so doing, MCLA works towards collaboration and purposeful engagement to achieve social justice on campus and in the wider community.
