The Center for Multicultural Affairs (CMA) promotes community engagement, multicultural education, leadership development, and social justice education among the student population. Our programs and services aim to empower students and their organizations to create a vibrant and inclusive community. The Center provides a welcoming environment for individuals to explore self and social awareness, to learn how to navigate a complex cultural environment from each unique perspective, to better understand themselves and the world around them. We provide cultural education and support that promotes cultural accommodation that comes from a sense of belonging.
The CMA's peer-driven approach encourages students to ask question, find what they need, interact with others of both similar and different backgrounds, to better understanding cultural change and discover common experiences. Through these interactions, students will create connections that will benefit each of them during their time at Duke and beyond.
