The following goals serve as a guidepost for our work as a campus and committee:
- Create an interculturally caring campus transformed by, and with a generous spirit toward, all people.
- Increase campus-wide diversity of ethnically/culturally diverse students, faculty, and staff through intentional recruitment and retention strategies.
- Build institutional capacity to recognize, navigate, and bridge the complexities of cultural differences to ensure that students, faculty, and staff feel valued and engaged.
- Intentionally cultivate relationships with minority representative groups within the Church of God (Anderson) and with other organizations locally, nationally, and globally.
The MOSAIC Team is committed to supporting the university’s intention to graduate students with a global perspective who have the knowledge, skills, and attributes needed to meaningfully engage in lives of faith and service in an increasingly diverse world.
We understand our efforts are undertaken within the context of a commitment as Christ-followers of a rich church heritage rooted in Biblical reconciliation and Christian unity. Within this context, and building our capacity to “bridge the complexities of cultural differences,” we will model and promote a work-learning environment where all people feel valued and engaged.
We are called as a Christ-centered community to create an environment where everyone feels included and loved. We advocate with and are sensitive to people or groups who may feel marginalized or do not have full value and/or participation within our community. We protect the human dignity of all.

At Anderson University, my perspective has been extremely broadened. I lived in a small farm town, graduated with 25 other kids, and I had only known what little I had seen. Whether it is hanging out in the CRC with Mike Thigpen and the multicultural and international students, or giving tours to prospective students, I have learned so much. I have seen others points of view and it has been absolutely amazing.
