MOSAIC (Motivating Our Students to Advocate for an Inclusive Campus) is a peer-to-peer education program with the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs. MOSAIC Educators are students who facilitate discussions and workshops about equity, diversity, and inclusion for the UW-Parkside community. MOSAIC Educators encourage students, staff, and faculty to demonstrate cultural competency and to advocate for an inclusive environment.
Our mission is to educate UW-Parkside students, staff, and faculty on equity, diversity, and inclusion through challenging dialogue and quality resources that go beyond the campus experience. We acknowledge our own potential biases, accept and honor differences, and respect other cultures and identities. We continuously work toward a campus climate of advocacy and belonging for all UW-Parkside students, faculty, and staff.
