Our Mission, Vision, and Values
The Center for Multicultural Affairs is committed to creating a more equitable and inclusive campus environment. We embolden students to examine the intersections of identity, to think critically about diversity and social justice, and to utilize their unique and collective voices to enact positive change.
We envision a campus community where all members are safe and able to live in full authenticity.
Advocacy: We believe that advocacy is essential to students’ college and life successes. We empower them with knowledge, skills and actions to create a more socially just society.
Student-centered: We believe students are at the core of our work; we are invested in their academic and personal success and development.
Excellence: We strive for excellence in all that we do.
Integrity: We value consistency between values and actions and strive to cultivate strong moral character in all students.
Social Justice: We believe in addressing inequity and harm as well as creating spaces and fostering relationships in which power is shared. We practice awareness of all forms of systemic oppression (racism, heterosexism, classism, patriarchy, etc.) as we reflect on who we are and how we engage with others.
