Mitchell College Statement on Diversity and Inclusion

Tolerance is not enough.

It is our collective responsibility to purposefully create a culture of diversity and inclusion on campus.

Mitchell College embraces equality, works toward equity, values all human lives, and denounces acts of racism, discrimination, harassment and hate. We believe everyone – our students, faculty and staff – has the ability to play a part in thoughtfully and deliberately modeling a better and more just world.

We strive to move beyond tolerance and instill in our students an awareness and appreciation for the innate powers of our differences in race, beliefs, learning styles, identity, convictions or cultures.

Fear, ignorance and disconnection from each other divides us. Recognizing the value and wisdom of inclusion brings us together.  

There is beauty in all of our differences, a nobility of intentional diversity. Practicing empathy for and seeking understanding of those unlike ourselves can be challenging. Yet with deliberative effort, great challenge yields great reward.

The process is simple.
Get started now

A few words on fit.


"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.


If you are looking for a college that: 


  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual

  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways

  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success

  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience

  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience

  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities

  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences

  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world

  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities




…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
