Event Details

Thursday, February 23

Friday, February 24


“Mosaic” is a series of events hosted by the Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) and the Center for Student Diversity and Inclusion (CSDI) thoughtfully designed to cater to the diverse experiences of our prospective students. 

In the most literal sense, a mosaic is a picture or pattern produced by arranging together smaller pieces that vary in size, shape, and color. Similarly, each John Carroll student brings their own unique life experiences, passions, and perspectives to campus, which ultimately creates the foundational community that helps them thrive.

Our goal is to acknowledge, celebrate, and create a space for all of the identities our students bring to campus, including students of color, first generation students, LGBTQ+, and more. The goal of the Mosaic events is to give prospective students an opportunity to our vibrant JCU community firsthand.

Keith A. Beauchamp


Award-winning filmmaker Keith A. Beauchamp attended Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where he studied criminal justice with the intention of becoming a civil rights attorney. As a young boy in Baton Rouge, Beauchamp had his share of run-ins with racism but it wasn’t until an incident where he was assaulted by an undercover police officer after dancing with a white classmate at a party that he felt compelled to fight racism and move to New York.

It was here he could pursue a dream in becoming a filmmaker. And through this feat, he’d attempt to remedy some of the past and present injustices that plague communities abroad.Keith Beauchamp has been featured on 60 Minutes, ABC World News Tonight 'Person of the Week,' Court TV, MSNBC, Good Morning America, CNN, BBC, as well as in hundreds of publications around the world including The New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Associated Press, and the Chicago Sun Times. Beauchamp’s past works include TV One’s Murder in Black and White, hosted by Reverend Al Sharpton and Wanted Justice: Johnnie Mae Chappell for the History Channel.

Beauchamp is currently the executive producer and host of Investigation Discovery’s crime reality series, The Injustice Files, and the producer of the upcoming feature film Till. He is also a frequent lecturer at colleges and universities around the country.Read Beauchamp’s full bio here.
