Pieces for a World Philosophy Quilt

As global communications increase and as the United States grows in its dedication to recognizing all those who contribute to this nation, I believe that it is very important to understand the many and diverse cultures in this nation and in the world.

Working Class

It is more difficult to talk about class issues in college and universities than almost any other issue. University culture was established by the upper and upper middle classes. Students whose parents are blue or pink collar workers and/or who are in the first generation of their families to attend college, often feel a certain confusion and lack of confidence in college and university settings. It is only recently that faculty and administrators from working class backgrounds have begun to speak openly about class.

I was the first in my family to attend college. I know that many of the students who attend Mount Saint Mary College are in the first generation of their families to attend college. It is good to know that there are persons around the country and around the world who are beginning to address some of the class issues in higher education.

This site remains under construction.
