Student Diversity

Intercultural Student Affairs


We serve as a resource for every student to engage in the rich education and growth found through active exchange across cultures and identities. We facilitate the exploration of critical issues around ability, class, ethnicity, gender identity, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, and the intersectionality of these and other identities. We are committed to building a campus community where all students can fully participate and feel valued, in an educational environment that is inclusive and safe.



Interculturally-focused Student Organizations include:

Black Student Union - Group leader: Yasmin

Muslim Student Association - Group leader: Bilal

Students Without Borders - Group leader: Chris

Queer-Straight Alliance - Group leader: Bryan

Student Alliance of Indigenous Peoples Group (SAIP) - Group leader: Liliana
