Mission Statement

MOSAIC is a group of students who join together to help equip our students, staff, and faculty to function in a diverse world by developing cultural competencies based on biblical principle. This group will accomplish their goals by endeavoring to create an environment both on and off campus enriched by diversity while being both welcoming and affirming to the breadth of God's creation. Mosaic will also assist in programming, hosting events, and walking alongside our body of international students helping them to better adjust to life on this campus and in this country.

Scriptural Foundation

John 17:22-23 "I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me."

1 Corinthians 12:14, 18-20 "Now the body is not made up of one part but of many. But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body."

Revelation 7:9 "After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands."

The MOSAIC body of work includes:

  • Facilitation of on-campus events aimed at raising the community's "Cultural IQ"
  • Working with the City of Longview organizing an annual multicultural program
  • Partnering with the Longview Police Department to collect Christmas toys for children
  • Collaboration with other universities in discussion forums on pertinent issues
