Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Project

OID’s Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Project is a student-led initiative that invites the HMC community to support Puerto Rico in its efforts to rebuild after Hurricane Maria’s devastating impact on the region. Fellow Mudder, Viviana Bermudez, designed the Hurricane Relief Project and rallied the community into action. Thank you to the student organizations, students, faculty and staff who have joined in this effort. You may donate monetarily however we have finished supply donations at this time.

OID Career Closet

The Campus Closet is a 7C resource for any student in the Claremont Colleges seeking to expand their professional attire. OID began this project as an effort to curb costs for students preparing for an interview, first day at a new job, or a Career/Job Fair. During the Fall 2017 semester, Project Decode hosted a student panel and workshop on being low-income at Mudd. The event was titled, “Invisible but Here: Being Low-income at Mudd.” During this event, students shared their college experience at Mudd, which informed OID and the community at large. The Campus Closet seeks to invigorate the campus community by increasing access to resources that meet students’ basic needs (awareness), creating a network of allies (allyship), and a plan for sustainability in supporting students (action).

The Career Closet is available to any 7C student, no appointment necessary: OID Office Hours 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Inventory supplies based on donations.

Open House Dates: The Career Closet will have Open House every first and third Wednesday of the month, from 12:15 to 1:15pm, in front of the Hoch-Shanahan.

April: Wednesday, April 4 and Wednesday, April 18

May: Wednesday, May 2

Donations: Thank you to the Mudd faculty and staff who have generously donated and expanded our Catalog

E-Catalog: Our first Digital Catalog to debut May 1, 2018.

Decode Abroad Scholarship

The Decode Abroad Scholarship was established to address opportunity gaps for Mudders who identify as first-generation and/or low-income. After identifying financial barriers expressed by fellow Mudders, the Office of Institutional Diversity (OID) decided to allocate resources to support student success and provide equitable opportunities for all Mudders to capitalize on professional and academic opportunities. This scholarship will be awarded for Summer and Fall 2018 study abroad programs. The deadline to apply is April 6, 2018.

This scholarship is open to all Mudd students but priority will be given to students who identify as low-income and/or first-generation college students.
