The purpose of the Mayor’s Office of New Bostonians (MONB) is to strengthen the ability of diverse cultural and linguistic communities to play an active role in the economic, civic, social and cultural life in the city of Boston. MONB acts as a catalyst for providing opportunity, access and equality for immigrants, and highlights the contributions and the essential role that immigrants have played and continue to play in making Boston the world class city that it is.

Intercultural Graduation Ceremony
McCarthy Center Forum
The Division of Inclusive Excellence invites you to join us to honor graduating seniors at a special intercultural ceremony.
Each June the University hosts an orientation program for the parents of incoming first year students. The program takes place over eight days in late June. Each day corresponds to a different group of academic majors. You will be assigned a day based on your student's academic major. The Parent Orientation day is the same as the student's orientation day. While there is no cost for your student to attend orientation, there is a $35.00/person cost for parents and guests who attend Parent Orientation.
While both parent and student have orientation on the same day, the programs are completely separate until the end of the day dinner. During the Parent Orientation you will gain knowledge on a variety of topics including academics, safety and security, student life, and of course the laptop program (how to purchase, how they are used in class, etc.). Although the day is long, our goal is to answer all of your questions before you leave. The program has a wealth of information presented in an engaging and entertaining way.
Parent Orientation invitations for June will be mailed to students in the spring. Please keep a look for it in your mailboxes. I look forward to meeting you.
