Earlier this month, the college named a new Director of the Multicultural Center – Wayne Currie. He is originally from Jamaica and is passionate about encouraging the advancement of diversity and inclusivity in education.

Diversity includes, but is not limited to, a range of different socioeconomic, cultural, religious, and racial backgrounds.

Within the next few months, Currie will lead programs and offer insight on how this Anselmian community can come together and allow diversity to reach its full potential.

Having spent the last 20 years as an advisor, mentor, educator, and program administrator of GEAR UP and TriO programs, Currie understands the importance of celebrating diversity on campus.

He holds degrees from both Northeastern University and University of Massachusetts-Boston. Additionally, Currie has worked as a coach and athletic director.

His work has often been based in local communities such as; Bradford College, Middlesex Community College, and Lowell High School.

Currie believes that “diversity enriches the multiple perspectives developed through a liberal arts education.”
