Mosaic Village


The Mosaic Village provides welcoming spaces throughout campus for specially funded support programs. We provide a safe environment to program eligible students who have been disproportionately impacted and identified in the Student Equity Plan (2015). Our efforts include targeted campus and community outreach, academic counseling, tutoring, workshops, cultural celebrations, field trips and referrals to other available resources on and off campus.
