Multicultural Programs and Retention

The Office of Multicultural Programs and Retention creates an environment that facilitates the engagement of differences in a comprehensive manner that allows students, faculty and staff to learn from one another and to recognize the value of the diversity of perspectives, experiences and cultures that exist within the University community, the surrounding community and the nation.

We aim to enhance the multicultural competencies across the University by providing the University community with broad opportunities for cross-cultural engagement and dialogue. This is crucial to the success of the entire student body in a rapidly shrinking global environment.

This is accomplished through a broad range of curricular and co-curricular learning opportunities. These are designed to provide the community with intentional opportunities to engage with differences that fuel intellectual growth, thus deriving the educational benefits of diversity by creating avenues for intense dialogue and rigorous analysis and by fostering mutually beneficial interactions among members of the University community.
