Conscience for Tomorrow

Thanks to a $75,000 grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation’s Pluralism and Unity Program, Holy Cross has established a new program entitled Conscience for Tomorrow. The program was developed to help achieve the goal of doubling the diversity of the student body in the next few years. The objective is to engage the entire campus in a dialogue addressing the important issues of not only increasing diversity, but also of helping students of color become full and active participants in the College community. As a result of the program, it is hoped that students will develop a greater view of diversity and understand its necessity on a college campus, as well as work to promote diversity and multiculturalism over their four years on the Hill.
“This exciting and innovative program will help students hone skills that involve having effective relationships with people from many diverse experiences, ethnic backgrounds, perceptions and ways of thinking,” said Jacqueline Peterson, vice president for student affairs and dean of students. “Holy Cross, as an educational institution, has an obligation to offer our students the best preparation possible for their positions outside the College.”
