Centers & Resources
The Division of Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion works closely in conjunction with many campus partners and is home for the Center at Moore Hall. As a division committed to the purposeful collaborations across all areas of the college and the greater community, we are proud to support the work and the efforts of so many stakeholders at Providence College.
The Center at Moore Hall
The Center at Moore Hall is a place for students, faculty, staff and community to build fellowship in an affirming space. A home of arts, cultural experiences, and intellectual inquiry, The Center at Moore Hall seeks to find new ways to solve problems together.
The Feinstein Institute for Public Service
The Feinstein Institute for Public Service is dedicated to critical reflection and action on key questions confronting our communities. Over the past two decades, the Institute has been involved in a range of programs for the purpose of learning with our community partners about the root causes of the issues being experienced, and supporting individual and collective action intended to improve social conditions.

We offer a variety of programs, resources, and services to support faculty, and we encourage feedback and suggestions for upcoming events.

Additional Student Supports & Resources
The Friar Foundations Program is aimed at easing the transition from high school to college for approximately 75 incoming Providence College students. Friar Foundations addresses two fundamental issues students must face when entering college — academic responsibility and social assimilation.
Participants in the program are already admitted students who complete a 1.5-credit-First Year Experience course, attend skills-building workshops, and partake in social and cultural experiences.
In choosing to attend Providence College, our students recognize the value of a liberal arts education within the Catholic, Dominican tradition; commitment to academic excellence, the pursuit of truth, growth in virtue, and service to God and others.
The Division of Student Affairs, through our comprehensive services and programs, strives to guide and support students while at PC, and to prepare them well for their lives after graduation. While the classroom develops our students’ hearts and minds in the pursuit of academic excellence and truth, our division helps students understand who they are and who they are called to be.
The Peer Mentoring Program (PMP) is an organization that supports first-generation college students in their pursuit of higher education. PMP builds community, offers social and academic support, and creates a reflective environment for students. The PMP program teaches students how to navigate the college community, balance relationships between home and campus, and create a network of support from peers and faculty.
The Horizons program supports multicultural students (freshmen to senior) in their matriculation through Providence College. Horizons programming includes a weekend retreat in the Fall semester, as well as a yearlong mentoring program between first year students and upper class students. It is our commitment that students are given the tools to navigate and acclimate to the campus culture while maintaining their identity and cultural value
