We Value Diversity
Ruth Weimer Mount believed in creating and nurturing relationships, and that everyone is valued. This truism is carried out in what we say and do. Mount Scholars come from all different backgrounds; we believe that diversity is more than "how we look." Diversity encompasses our cultures, our beliefs, our ethnicities, who we love and what we value. Mount Scholars care about one another. We look out for each other, support each other, celebrate with each other and challenge each other.
Everyone is welcome in the Mount Leadership Society.
Each Scholars Program features a first-year residential community that provides students with a peer-network of high-ability students with similar interests. First-year Mount Leadership Society Scholars students are given priority to live together in Bowen House. ** Commuters are welcome to be a part of our Scholars programs.
**Please note that space in the prescribed residence halls is not guaranteed and students can be placed in other accommodations due to program demand if necessary.
Mount Launch Week
First year Mount Scholars are individually paired with upper-level students to help with their transition from high school to college. The megas (upper-level students) answer questions, provide advice, and show the mini's (first years) their classrooms during launch week.
Committees play a major role in the working of the Mount Leadership Society. Committees, chaired by upper-class Mount Scholars, begin in September. Joining a committee is optional. Committees include:
Advancement and Alumni Relations
Leadership and Social Change
Media and Archives
Recruitment, Outreach, and Welcome
