The MUGT community is a residential community for both U.S. and International students. This community is geared towards diversifying a student's global competence and enhancing mutual respects and understanding amount stu-dents of different backgrounds. Members are engaged in a number of cross-cultural programs and experiences to en-hance their sensitivity to diversity and to promote social justice across the borders. Students must be open for interac-tion with other students with respect to their backgrounds and beliefs and to sharing their own heritage with their peers. Additionally, it is expected that students will participate in at least two community events a semester and be actively engaged in the community. This community is open to men and women.
