Mosaic: Engaging Colgate’s multicultural community


Mosaic strengthens ties with and within Colgate’s multicultural community to develop a lifetime of engagement.
Members of the Alumni of Color organization gather at reunion 2016
Colgate created Mosaic — a team of students, alumni, faculty, and staff — to help coordinate and communicate the activities of various university organizations that serve alumni and students of color.

What We Do

  • Sponsor programming on and off campus to engage students and alumni of color
