Intercultural Center

Abstract image with wording

The Intercultural Center (IC) cultivates an inclusive community where individuals can thrive while embracing their full, authentic selves. The Intercultural Center develops programs to educate and encourage dialogue across the entire University community on issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, anti-racism, and interculturalism. Through robust programs, innovative initiatives, comprehensive services, and curated resources, the Intercultural Center aims to serve as an institutional model of inclusive excellence.8

The mission of the Intercultural Center is to meet the complex needs of students with historically marginalized identities, including those excluded from higher education, by actively providing advocacy, support, and professional development.
