MOSAIC Team & Intercultural Engagement
Among Anderson University’s strategic priorities is our intent to build an interculturally responsive campus, to diversify the student body, and to recruit qualified faculty and staff who bring ethnic and cultural diversity.
Informed by Romans 14:19 (NRSV), “Let us then pursue what makes for peace and for mutual up-building,” the university supports a MOSAIC Team comprised of faculty, staff, and students who lead the institution’s efforts for intercultural engagement. Both the Provost and the Director of the Cultural Resource Center give leadership to the MOSAIC Team.
With deliberation, the diversity committee chose the name MOSAIC to uniquely demonstrate our campus commitment to infuse the AU culture with intercultural competence. The acronym for MOSAIC stands for:
M – Multicultural
O – Opportunities to
S – Strategically
A – Actualize
I – Intercultural
C - Competence
