Multicultural Student Affairs

The Multicultural Center

The Multicultural Center provides a supportive and diverse environment for the USM campus community. The Center serves as a catalyst in creating community for students of color, where cultural activities and celebrations occur, and its affiliated student organizations meet. Through various programming, the Center explores critical issues on campus about race, class, ethnicity, nationality, and culture. The Center is open to the entire USM Community. However, the Center has a unique role with regards to the support of students from marginalized communities and cultures. Please visit us at the Woodbury Campus Center, on the Portland campus.
