The Office of Multicultural and International Student Affairs works to foster an open and vibrant learning environment that welcomes, respects, and appreciates the histories, traditions, and cultures of traditionally underrepresented student populations. Our programs and services enhance the retention and persistence of students, while supporting their academic, personal and professional development. In addition, the office seeks out future leaders not yet involved in an organization to participate in leadership services.
