The McCormick Hall Inclusive Leadership CommUNITY is a vibrant, residential-learning community open to all undergraduate students. It has male and female wings and houses 70 residents. Students from minority and majority cultures have an opportunity to interact with and learn from each other in an environment accepting of all people.
Faculty members from the College of Arts and Sciences have actively participated in the CommUNITY offering MARQ 1954 The Dynamics of Cross-Cultural Engagement 1 and MARQ 1955 The Dynamics of Cross-Cultural Engagement 2, a two-semester seminar (1.5 credit hours/semester) focusing on cultural diversity that is required of all members of the CommUNITY. Students enhance their knowledge of cultures through readings and attendance at cultural events on campus and within the city. Students develop and cultivate leadership skills through planning and implementing social and educational programs with cultural themes, including dinners, speakers and retreats. Students are encouraged to share their experiences and knowledge through involvement in other student organizations and activities.
