About Us

The mission of the Student Multicultural Center is to cultivate a sense of belonging and cultural affirmation for our students. We value growth of the individual student and strive to connect communities that encourage and support an appreciation for difference. To support underrepresented students, we collaborate with on-and off-campus stakeholders which allows us to operate as a community, a family, and a village.
