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.

Native American Heritage Month 2018

Native American Heritage Month 2018

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 “Our Fire Still Burns.” The fire burning analogy exemplifies the strength, resiliency and integrity of Native American people. The theme dispels the myth that Native people have disappeared from the American radius; they are still fighting to reclaim their land even today.
