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 is dedicated to recognizing and honoring Indigenous cultures across the country. During this month at NC State, Multicultural Student Affairs hosts a myriad of events for Native students to celebrate their unique and vibrant traditions and tribes. Some of these signature events include the Indigenous Speakers Series, Native American Culture Night, and the Dreamcatcher Workshop.read more
