What is CORE?

CORE is the leadership development program offered by the Office of Social Justice at Mount St. Mary’s. The CORE Leaders are undergraduate students who are selected and trained to facilitate social justice and service experiences on campus, in our local community, and across the country. These dynamic students are passionate about issues of social justice, equity, and an active response to a call to serve.

Application Information

Members of the freshman and sophomore classes with an interest in service and justice are encouraged to apply to be part of CORE. Applications are available in the office (McGowan 114)

Slide Show Information Sessions
Come learn about the CORE team, the applications, interviews, and have your questions answered by current CORE staff members. All information sessions take place in the Office of Social Justice.

Applicants invited to interview will select a 40 min interview time with our selection committee so that we can best form our training cohort. 


Individuals selected as part of the CORE training cohort must attend all mandatory trainings and retreats.
