The JFMC welcomes students from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Please feel free to drop by to visit and learn what new endeavors are taking place on our campus involving diversity, inclusion, and social justice. Our most important goal is to enhance students’ educational experiences while here at UMW by increasing awareness and knowledge of diversity issues (for example: cultural, ethnic, intellectual, social) that impact individuals as well as the community as a whole. The JFMC strongly encourages engagement from students in these initiatives.

Participation in clubs, programming, and other activities outside classes helps to develop democratic principles and critical thinking skills that make our students the best leaders and citizens they can be. We also support the campus behavioral standards expressed in the Statement of Community Values, Statement of Non-Discrimination, Statement of Diversity and Inclusion, and the Bias Offense and Incident Reporting Policy. Please see the following sites for more information about our university-wide policies:

Be sure to come by the third floor of the University Center (Room 319) and meet us to learn about all the other opportunities for involvement that we offer. We look forward to seeing you!
