We Stand Together

The driving ethos in the MSCS department is its “big tent” philosophy. Our mission statement says that we aim to “[foster] an inclusive community of students and faculty” and strive to “[welcome] students with a broad range of interests, backgrounds, experiences, and aspirations.” We especially want our students of color to know that your safety and thriving are of utmost importance to us. We stand with you and we are listening. Please know that you are always welcome to talk with any of us about how we can better foster an inclusive community at St. Olaf and in the MSCS department.
