What is CORE?

CORE is the leadership development program offered by the Office of Social Justice. This unique program allows for undergraduate students who are committed to service and social justice to become trained student leaders who plan, facilitate, and lead the Mount community in the various experiences offered by the Office of Social Justice. These dynamic students eagerly share their knowledge and passions with others of issues of social justice and advocate for positive change. Learn more about the current CORE leaders.

Selection Process

Members of the freshman and sophomore classes with an interest in service and justice are encouraged to apply to be part of CORE. Applications will be available in the office (McGowan 114) starting on August 24, 2015 and due on September 11, 2015.

Information Sessions

Come learn about this opportunity from those who know it the best, current CORE leaders! Information sessions will be held by current student leaders to discuss the mission of CORE, their experience in CORE, explain the application and interview process, and answer any other questions applicants may have. These will be held in the Office of Social Justice and session dates will be sent out to campus in an email at the beginning of the academic year.


After all applications have been reviewed, arrangements will be made for applicants to be interviewed by a small group of current CORE leaders as well as office staff members.


If selected, applicants will be required to attend all mandatory training sessions and retreats with the other members of the CORE training cohort. Dates for these experiences will be outlined on the application so new members will have the ability to make the necessary schedule arrangements.
