We're Here to Help You

The Heritage College Office of Inclusion develops and implements strategies, programs and activities on all three of our campuses that promote diversity through educational learning experiences and cultural competency training for students, faculty and staff.

Holistic Approach

The Heritage College is committed to honoring the wholeness and balance within each person. We believe in cultivating a community of mutual respect that accepts others and embraces diversity. On each of our three campuses, we offer spaces to support mindfulness, meditation and lactation. 

Athens: Alden Library has a meditation room on the 5th floor. There are multiple lactation rooms around the broader campus.

Cleveland: There is a lactation room on campus and a chapel across the street at Cleveland Clinic South Pointe Hospital. 

Dublin: A dual lactation/meditation room can be found on campus. 


Please be respectful of others desiring to use these spaces and refrain from extended stay. We ask that these rooms be left in the same condition they were in prior to use. These rooms are not to be used as lounges, study rooms or meeting rooms. 

The Office of Inclusion is committed to continuously evolving to best serve all people. Please contact us if there are any questions or concerns regarding these spaces.
