Multicultural Affairs plans, coordinates and hosts interactive events to engage our campus community around the central themes of identity, culture, heritage, differences, justice and service. Our cross-departmental and campus partnerships help us infuse a diversity of disciplines and expertise into our programs and events.
Heritage Awareness Weeks
As an institution, we believe in the celebrating and acknowledging the contributions of cultural groups to our campus and to our world. During the year, we seek to bring awareness to the following heritages, cultures and identities. A wide array of activities such as film screenings, meals, panel discussion and service projects are sponsored by Multicultural Affairs in conjunction with our student organizations, campus partners, academic departments and community organizations.

Each semester, Multicultural Affairs facilitates a monthly dialogue program designed to invite challenging and transformative conversation on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexuality and disability. This space is an opportunity to participants to explore their own cultural identity, understand the experiences of others, critically examine social systems and actively work towards a more just world. Conversations are moderated by faculty, staff and community leaders that are able to bring unique perspectives to each discussion.
