Founded by the Congregation of Holy Cross in 1948, Stonehill is a private Catholic college located just 22 miles from downtown Boston on a beautiful 384-acre campus in Easton, Massachusetts. With a student-to-faculty ratio of 13:1, the College engages its 2,400+ students in 80+ rigorous academic programs in the liberal arts, sciences, and pre-professional fields.   

Faithful to the Holy Cross tradition in education, Stonehill College is committed to developing the moral, spiritual, intellectual, physical, and social competencies of its students and seeks to build and sustain a campus community that embraces diversity and inclusion in its teaching, learning, living, and working. Stonehill values the diversity of persons, opinions, and cultural and religious perspectives. In fulfillment of its motto, Lux et Spes (“Light and Hope”), the College cultivates in its students the competence to think, act, and lead with courage towards creating a more just and compassionate world.

The mission of the Office of Intercultural Affairs (OIA) is to contribute to the creation, influence, and sustainability of a community where the dignity of all people is respected and affirmed. OIA contributes to the mission of the College by providing leadership and support in the College’s commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity. OIA provides academic, cultural, and personal support to students – including students of color and other underrepresented student populations on campus – through developing intellectual, social, and leadership skills.  

Throughout the year, OIA, in collaboration with student groups and other departments, sponsors programs that raise awareness of diversity at Stonehill, in our community, and in our world. This is achieved by educating on various social justice concepts and themes, including but not limited to issues impacting racial and ethnic groups; sexual orientation and identity; socioeconomic experiences; disability and ability; immigration; and educational status. 
  
The Assistant Director for Programming and Training supports the mission of OIA by executing defined responsibilities with a focus on program development, training/ facilitation, advising, and administrative and collaborative professional matters.
