WELCOME TO
MULTICULTURAL STUDENT AFFAIRS

Multicultural Student Affairs is one of four campus community centers (along with the GLBT Center, the Women’s Center, and the African American Cultural Center) housed under the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED).

Multicultural Student Affairs (MSA) researches, designs and implements unique programs that promote the pursuit of academic success, retention and graduation of students, with an emphasis on African American, Native American and Hispanic/Latino students. Our programs and services expand students’ cultural horizons while honoring their respective cultural experiences. We work to bring academic enhancement opportunities, cultural awareness activities and student leadership development to all students on campus.

On August 3, 1990, the month of November was recognized by President George H. W. Bush as Native American Heritage Month (NAHM). During this month, we take the time to recognize the people, culture, traditions, crafts, and music that existed in the United States before it became what we know today.

The campus theme for this year is “Decolonizing & Reclaiming Indignity.” Indignity has often been defined by systems that were put into place to define who Native American people are. This year, we want to reclaim what it means to be Indigenous and how indignity is represented. Read More for our calendar of events for the month.
