Welcome to the Office of Multicultural Student Life and the Multicultural Center!


The mission of the Office of Multicultural Student Life is to actively promote an inclusive learning environment by enhancing institutional efforts in retaining and graduating students prepared for a diverse global society. We promote the academic success and leadership development of students through intentional programs and services that holistically address cultural, educational and civic growth.  

About Us

The Multicultural Center serves a community of culturally diverse students. We are a resource and advocate for traditionally underrepresented student populations.

  • A safe and welcoming space for relaxation, meetings, and studying
  • Referrals and connections to campus resources
  • Educational, cultural and social programs
