Multicultural Student Services assists with the educational, cultural, social and personal needs of all students, with special emphasis on ethnicity, gender, and minority issues. The primary focus is to aid in the development of tomorrow’s leaders and scholars.

Some of our services include sponsoring, co-sponsoring, and supporting academic, social, and cultural events on campus and in the community. Feel free to contact us or just stop by our office located on the main level of the Student Union.

Our Mission
