At Covenant College, we learn from the perspectives of each and every student that joins our student body because we believe Jesus Christ makes himself known in diversity. Our diverse student body—comprised of minority students, international students, and children of missionaries—promises you a culturally enriching experience.
The Cultural Diversity Program brings together students of diverse backgrounds to share their cultural experiences with the Covenant community. The program is coordinated by the associate dean of students for student life and seven upperclassmen student leaders who seek to support and invest in each individual through various means.
The mission of the students in the program is to seek to become global Christians who identify with other cultures by first gaining an understanding of the biblical mandates regarding the nature of God's kingdom and using their skills, knowledge, dispositions, and values to serve effectively in a pluralistic world. They also seek to lovingly and faithfully support and invest in students of diverse backgrounds as they enter into and continue to be a part of the Covenant community.
The program addresses the entire well-being of every student through a range of student-driven activities, including:
- regular fellowship
- bowling nights
- dinner and a movie nights
- student-led chapel programs
- Culture Fest: an annual celebration featuring various ethnic, linguistic and cultural styles of singing, dancing and dress, and concluding with a rich feast of international foods
