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.

We are hosting our annual Latinx Heritage Month celebration on NC State’s campus from September 15th to October 15th and we would love for you to join us! During National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 – October 15), the U.S. recognizes the important presence of Latin American immigrants and celebrates their heritage and culture. At NC State, we name the celebration Latinx Heritage Month to be more inclusive of the experiences and identities of our students, staff and community. We also take this time to recognize the present issues facing our people and the future of what it means to be Latinx.
 
Our theme this year centers current realities of being a young Latinx person in the US. We want to share our experiences and LatinXsistence! 
 
Join us this fall, more information to be released soon. If you have any questions please reach out to Marcela Torres Cervantes via email at matorres@ncsu.edu
