All students at Assumption are encouraged to stretch their world view and participate in activities and groups that offer valuable insight into other races, ethnicities, and religions.
ALANA (African, Latino/Hispanic, Asian and Native American) Network is a student-run group that meets weekly during the academic year in order to plan and promote student and community activities.
The Network seeks to foster an overall inclusive environment and awareness of diversity among its members and the entire Assumption College community. It also strives to educate and engage the Assumption community through various activities such as; multicultural events, panel discussions, weekly meetings, lectures, performances, etc.
The Network works collaboratively with other student organizations within the Assumption community as well as student organizations in the ALANA Support Network Consortium.
In addition, we honor a faculty member with the ALANA Diversity Award, given to recognize those who demonstrate sensitivity to diversity issues, a commitment to treating all students fairly, and incorporating different cultural perspectives into his or her course material.
