DEI - Get Involved

Multicultural student center

The Multicultural Student Center (MSC) is a hub of activism, connecting students of all cultures, races,  and backgrounds. We encourage collaboration, DEI programming, and respect for identities.   All programming is designed to increase human understanding through the study and expression of culture. The MSC provides potential coalition space for groups in one physical location, encouraging dialogue and cooperation toward achieving common goals.
