About Us: Our Mission

Mission:
The mission of the UNCG Office of Multicultural Affairs is to help prepare students to work in a 21st century global society.

Vision:
Students gain cultural competency skills that address critical needs/challenges of working and living in a society such as:

-Social and Cross-Cultural Skills/Interact effectively with others
-Self-Direction and Social Responsibility
-Cultural Awareness and Understanding
-Understanding diverse cultures
-Ability to value diversity
-Exhibit sensitivity to cultural issues
-Communicate with diverse cultural groups
-Understanding of how nations, individuals, groups, economies are interconnected and how they relate to each other.

Philosophy:
The UNCG Office of Multicultural Affairs, an integral part of the Division of Student Affairs, bases its philosophy on inclusion-fostering recognition and respect for the voices of all students and contributes to the University’s academic mission in providing student-centered programs.

The Office of Multicultural Affairs serves a critical role in providing learning opportunities for students that promote awareness and respect for cultural diversity and offer opportunities to provoke thought and expand cross-cultural and inter-cultural knowledge.

The Office of Multicultural Affairs strives to contribute to a community in which all students feel safe and empowered to recognize and act on one’s social responsibility in relation to domestic and global issues.

The Office of Multicultural Affairs offers advocacy, programming, and support systems to encourage students to realize the highest level of their potential, particularly as it pertains to the University’s retention and graduation efforts of traditionally under-served student populations (such as, but not limited to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression).
