Multicultural Education

As our country is in turmoil over current and past instances of racial injustice,
we have created a list of resources for students, faculty and staff to
learn more about race, racism, white privilege, advocating and anti-racism work.

  • Organize educational events that promote and improve diversity awareness on campus
  • Offer trainings for student leaders, faculty and staff to better understand their own personal and social identities



  • Recruit and retain students with marginalized identities, including students of color, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, women, first generation college students, and Pell-eligible students
