Programs and Services
The Office of Intercultural Affairs provides a variety of programs for the campus and the greater Albion community. We believe that cultural-educational programs encourage cultural synthesis. That is, students are positioned to learn about themselves in relation to others who may be different. Exposure to different people with different ideas is the bedrock of a relevant and empowering liberal arts education. These kinds of outside the classroom experiences provides common ground for principled inquiry, growth, and learning.

Smooth Transitions Mentor Program
Smooth Transitions coordinates effective academic and social support during the fall semester to foster student growth and adjustment to Albion College and the surrounding community.
Smooth Transitions matches first-year students from an under-represented ethnic or racial background with upperclass students. The program provides guidance and direction to our first-year students in order to assist them in making a successful transition to Albion, both academically and socially.
A student mentor will regularly meet with their assigned student mentee, helping him or her find resources to support student academic and social needs, encouraging their peer student’s involvement in student organizations, and inviting their peer student to various social outings.
Special Activities Hosted by the Office of Intercultural Affairs
The Office of Intercultural Affairs assists students and the Albion campus to engage in advocacy, dialogue, and learning experiences by offering a range of special events throughout the year. Those events include:
Study Breaks – An Intercultural Affairs tradition to host a late-night pancake study break before final exams
Conference Opportunities – Support students to travel, attend, and/or present at regional and national conferences, such as the Great Lakes College Association’s Student of Color Leadership Conference
Dialogues – Allows students to voice and constructively discuss today’s hot topics, ranging from LGBTQ to women’s issues, and from cultural identity to social injustice
Office of the Chaplain
A tradition of spiritual life.
At Albion College, we’re proud of our tradition of spiritual life. The Office of the Chaplain coordinates campus spiritual life, and is here to help you develop as a spiritual person. While we honor our historic affiliation with the United Methodist Church, our campus is incredibly diverse in belief, and the Office of the Chaplain serves students from all backgrounds.
Spiritual life at Albion College is focused on deepening faith, developing leaders, and learning from diversity. We partner with the campus and larger community to deepen spiritual values, cultivate diversity, and prepare students for a pluralistic global workplace.
Come see us, meet our College Chaplain, Rev. Daniel McQuown (right), as well as our phenomenal student spiritual life leaders.
Beginning in the fall semester 2013, Chaplaincy will move to a new home at 1000 E. Porter St. (adjacent to the fraternities). Our new home will offer incredible new space for Spiritual Life, with expanded space for departmental programs and leadership development. There will be an Open House for the Albion College community at the beginning of the fall.
