Diversity Affairs

Celebrate our differences

At Morningside College, we appreciate the differing viewpoints and perspectives that a diverse student body can provide. Diversity on campus is valued and nurtured through programs, activities and curriculum that actively engage the entire college community. We know this will help prepare all of our students for success in a global society. Here are some student organizations that celebrate diversity on our campus:

  • SHADES – The purpose of SHADES – Students Helping Achieve Diversity and Equality Socially – is to bring students of different races, religions, ethnicities and other cultural differences together because they are interested in sharing ideas that will help mold our campus into a stronger community because of our many differences.
  • International Student Association – The International Student Association strives to promote cultural awareness through activities where students are able to learn from people from different cultures and backgrounds.
  • Gay Straight Alliance – This organization sponsors events that develop awareness of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people and concerns on campus, to provide a supportive environment for LGBT people and their allies on campus, and to promote understanding and equality for all Morningside students, faculty and staff.
