We aspire to achieve our love of dear neighbor without distinction, which permeates all forms of social identities and human experiences.

Welcoming individuals from a variety of backgrounds improves and enriches our learning, living and working environments. Any breach of these values harms our community. Mount Saint Mary's University transforms its culture through the radical pursuit of institutionalized change.
