Mosaic: Engaging Colgate’s multicultural community


Mosaic strengthens ties with and within Colgate’s multicultural community to develop a lifetime of engagement.
Colgate created Mosaic — a team of students, alumni, faculty, and staff — to help coordinate and communicate the activities of various university organizations that serve alumni and students of color.

  • Sponsors programming on and off campus to engage students and alumni of color
  • Strengthens career development opportunities for multicultural students
  • Keeps alumni of color informed on topics of diversity and inclusion at Colgate
  • Offers strategies to Colgate’s administration to increase a sense of belonging among the university’s multicultural community
