College-Wide Initiative on Anti-Racism
Meredith College is working to cultivate an inclusive and pluralistic campus environment where diverse identities are welcomed into our living, learning, and working community. The anti-racism initiative reflects our commitment to strength, integrity, and the power of education to bring about real and lasting change across Meredith’s campus.
On February 27, Meredith College’s annual Make It Count for Meredith Giving Day brings the Meredith community together to show students we support their education.
