Through this office the mission of the Division of Student Life is prioritized. We aim to ensure that all of our courses, programs and services emphasize the value of diversity and inclusivity, promote and support positive global citizenship in our communities, nurture and support divergent ideas, cultural awareness, and presentation of world and domestic issues. We commit to contribute to creating and sustaining a campus climate that supports many identities and encourages all students’ retention and success at the University of Maine.
Greetings from the Vice President of Student Life
Our Office of Multicultural Student Life provides a window on the world where students, faculty, and staff come together to celebrate difference and the rich cultures that make up the UMaine community. Our Center is a safe and welcoming place to explore issues of race and ethnicity and a place where diversity in all its forms is supported and shared with our community.
Director for the Multicultural Center
Fostering and celebrating diversity has become essential to the education of all of the graduates from our university. As our society changes and our economies become more interrelated, our students must be equipped with the education, skills and attributes needed to achieve their individual goals. The Office of Multicultural Student Life seeks to actively support the administration of the University of Maine in creating and sustaining a welcoming and affirming campus climate. We hope that our students will achieve the necessary tools so that they can successfully compete in, contribute to and hopefully change their world so that all will be received as equals.
