Message from the President

Coupled with our pursuit of academic excellence and in accordance with our Mission, the College of the Holy Cross is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in all facets of our community.  As a Jesuit, Catholic liberal arts college, with distinctive values and commitment, we honor differing perspectives and life experiences which foster meaningful discourse and dialogue; and we encourage students, faculty, staff, and alumni to think critically about unjust social structures and take action toward change.   

As President, I have raised diversity to an institutional priority and I am personally counting on all administrators, faculty, staff, and students, as well as alumni, to join me as we embrace and uphold the value of diversity as a hallmark of Holy Cross.  I have appointed members of the faculty and administration, representing critical areas of the College, to the Diversity Leadership Team.  They are charged with facilitating the development of a comprehensive, action-oriented plan to focus institutional attention on diversity and inclusion in keeping with the mission of the College.  I invite the entire community to work with their colleagues and the Diversity Leadership Team that we may be enriched by the experience of learning and working in a diverse, welcoming, and inclusive environment.

Rev. Philip L. Boroughs, S.J., president
