Bates Alumni MOSAIC

Bates Alumni MOSAIC seeks to build community among underrepresented racial, ethnic, LGBTQIA+, first-generation college, and international alumni. MOSAIC was developed in 2015 through a collaboration between the Office of Alumni Engagement and the Office of Equity and Inclusion. We are committed to inclusive communications and opportunities for engagement. We welcome your participation and feedback as we work to build and maintain strong alumni identity networks.
