Diversity at Goshen College


Goshen brings people together

In the 2013 edition of “America’s Best Colleges,” U.S. News & World Report recognizes Goshen as 30th among liberal arts colleges for most international students and having high ethnic diversity on campus. Our diverse campus welcomes students from 38 countries and many religions outside the Mennonite faith. In fact, more than 40 different Christian denominations and several world religions are represented here.

Of course, none of this is news to us. Diversity is so important at Goshen that we have an entire office dedicated to it. The Diverse Student Support Office supports diversity-related clubs and organizations, hosts multicultural events and activities, and sponsors programs like Martin Luther King Jr. Study Day, Hispanic Day and Peace of the Arts.

Breaking boundaries and broadening perspectives

Intercultural opportunities abound at Goshen, starting with our popular Study-Service Term (SST), which takes students to places like China, Peru and Tanzania for a semester. And if you want to add global perspectives to your area of study, the international studies minor makes it possible.

Right here in Indiana, Goshen’s Center for Intercultural & International Education (CIIE) connects with the Latino population through educational research, curriculum development and access to resources.

Wherever we go, whomever we meet, Goshen joins people in peace and understanding.
