Mary Lyon's famous words — “Go where no one else will go, do what no one else will do” — continue to inspire Mount Holyoke students today. There are more than 35,000 alumnae creating change around the world, and their journeys started right here at Mount Holyoke.
At MHC's three Academic Centers, students learn to act with intent and purpose, in the moment and on the path toward the future. They are empowered to become agents of change — globally competent, environmentally responsible, ready to lead.
- The McCulloch Center for Global Initiatives is the hub and catalyst for comprehensive internationalization at Mount Holyoke, offering varied and meaningful opportunities for students to advance their global knowledge — and for faculty to incorporate more global perspectives into their teaching. The Center collaborates with partners on and off campus to weave global education into the Mount Holyoke experience through course support, conferences, scholars-in-residence, international research and internships, study abroad, programs to integrate international students into college life, and more.
- The Miller Worley Center for the Environment is dedicated to actively engaging Mount Holyoke students in the scientific, social/human, and global dimensions of environmental study. By hosting special events, stewarding Mount Holyoke’s campus living laboratory, and offering internships, the Center enables students to make connections — across disciplines, across points of view, across constructs — that help them understand the concept of "environment" more broadly in their work, community, and lives.
- The Weissman Center for Leadership promotes the exploration and expansion of leadership — in all its many shapes and forms — by helping students, faculty and staff learn the skills to think strategically and yield influence. The courses, internships, public events, workshops, and networking opportunities available through the Weissman Center span three core programs: Community-Based Learning (CBL); Leadership and Public Service (LAPS); and Speaking, Arguing, and Writing (SAW).
