Programs & Services
The Office of Diversity & Inclusion offers a wide variety of programs and services for the Franklin College campus.
B.O.S.S. (Building Opportunity through Support and Structure) Mentoring Program
The B.O.S.S. Mentoring Program pairs underrepresented Franklin College students with professionals in the Indianapolis Community. The purpose is to provide students with an adult mentor who is outside of the FC campus community and to expose them to successful individuals whom they may not have otherwise encountered.
The recently renovated multicultural lounge includes a full kitchen, new paint, new furniture and a computer station. Students visiting this space will be exposed to an environment that encourages their participation in academic and co-curricular experiences that emphasize diversity, multiculturalism, social responsibility, self-awareness, cross-cultural dialogue and community building within and outside of this space and the larger college community. The space is open for everyone!
The Office of Diversity & Inclusion provides various trainings on different dimensions of diversity throughout the school year. This also includes Safe Zone training that is done in conjunction with the Counseling Center.
The Office of Diversity & Inclusion has a small but growing resource library available to students, faculty and staff. Individuals are able to check out these resources for a limited amount of time.
