One of the best things about the Babson student experience is the exposure to the incredible amount of diversity that exists within the Babson community. Babson students build lasting relationships with other students, staff and faculty from over 40 U.S states and territories and over 80 countries around the world.
Students are encouraged to not only explore and develop their own identities but to learn about the identities and experiences of others in order to maximize learning and personal development. In order to do this, students attend events such as the annual Multicultural Festival, participate in dialogues with the Community Unity Educators, attend culture shows and performances by Babson’s cultural clubs, study abroad, or attend one of our many student-led forums, symposiums, or presentations.
The Multicultural Programs team within the Glavin Office strives to uphold these values by creating innovative programs and services designed to build the most inclusive campus experience for all students. The office works collaboratively with all campus departments to identify and implement institutional priorities for student diversity efforts on campus while providing mentoring and advising for under-served and under-represented students. Lastly, the office works with all students, student leaders, and student clubs and organizations to promote and create an inclusive campus environment.
