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.

Latinx Heritage Month

Latinx Heritage Month

During National Latinx Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) we recognize the contributions made and the important presence of Hispanic and Latinx Americans to the United States and celebrate their heritage and culture.

Hispanics have had a profound and positive influence on our country through their strong commitment to family, faith, hard work, and service. They have enhanced and shaped our national character with centuries-old traditions that reflect the multiethnic and multicultural customs of their community.

Hispanic Heritage Month, whose roots go back to 1968, begins each year on September 15, the anniversary of the independence of five Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Mexico, Chile and Belize also celebrate their independence days during this period and Indigenous Peoples Day is October 10.

Latinx Heritage Month: GLBT Center Film Screening

Join the GLBT Center as we screen the film, “Forbidden: Undocumented and Queer in Rural America,” as a part of Latinx Heritage Month. Living at the intersections of gender, sexuality, and nationality, this film follows Moises Serrano, a queer and undocumented activist as he fights for legal protections for undocumented immigrants across the state of North Carolina. Following the film, engage in a discussion that unpacks some of the systemic and institutional barriers present for folks who identify as GLBT and are undocumented in the United States.
