Diversity and equity focuses on implementing a variety of initiatives to address issues on campus with staff and students. Most recently as part of a campus-wide diversity and inclusion initiative the College is holding Safe Zone Trainings for students, staff, and faculty.

The Safe Zone Project is a resource that aims to build powerful and effective LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning +) educational opportunities through awareness and ally training workshops. Safe Zone trainings offer the chance for participants to learn about LGBTQ+ identities, gender, and sexuality.

The Intercultural Club is a student group committed to promoting intercultural understanding at Endicott. As a club, we plan and participate in numerous cultural activities each year, both on and off campus. Activities include international dinners and film nights, charity events for international causes, and sponsorship of international and cultural performances and programs on campus. The Intercultural Club, which is open to all students on campus, is also proud to sponsor Endicott's Global Village each semester.

Global Ambassador Program
Who better than a current Gull to welcome the new Gulls? The Global Ambassador program at Endicott is very helpful to newly arrived international students. Upon arrival, each new student is assigned a Global Ambassador (GA). GAs are typically upperclassmen who are also international students or domestic students who have returned from a study abroad experience. They help new international students in their adjustment to the campus and to the United States. Your GA will take you to shop for any necessities, have dinner with you periodically, and check in during the semester to see how you're doing. They also plan outings to help you get to know the area, and of course, they are always available for your questions and concerns. Each April, students may apply to become Global Ambassadors for the following academic year.

Endicott's association with study abroad sites in more than 20 countries throughout the world provides a wealth of opportunities to immerse yourself in cross-cultural experiences. You will develop a unique awareness of the critical issues facing nations today and informed insights into what they might be able to do to truly make a difference.

The Safe Zone Project is a resource that aims to build powerful and effective LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning +) educational opportunities through awareness and ally training workshops. Safe Zone trainings offer the chance for participants to learn about LGBTQ+ identities, gender, and sexuality.
