The Student Diversity Centers, both in Portland and Gorham, provide a supportive and inclusive spaces for the USM campus community. The Centers serve as catalysts in creating community for students, where cultural activities and celebrations occur, and student organizations meet. Through various programming, the Centers explore critical issues on campus about race, class, ethnicity, nationality, culture, sexual orientation, gender identity, and most importantly, the success of our students. The Centers are open to the entire USM Community. However, they have a unique role with regards to the support of students from historically marginalized communities and cultures. Please visit us at the Woodbury Campus Center on the Portland campus or Upper Brooks Hall on the Gorham campus!
