UMBC is one of the most diverse campuses in the nation, and we value the richness that such diversity brings to campus life. Through the Mosaic: Center for Culture and Diversity and the Interfaith Center, we support students in building their awareness and knowledge of diverse people, cultures and belief systems. Through facilitated discussions, informal gatherings, presentations and campus-wide events, individual students, student organizations and classes learn the skills to create inclusive, just and mutually respectful communities at UMBC and beyond.
