The Office of Multicultural Affairs has several Student Advocacy & Outreach initiatives:
- Cultural Programming Council
The Office of Multicultural Affairs organizes a Cultural Programming Council to promote, foster and encourage respect and meaningful inter-cultural and cross-cultural understanding and appreciation of similarities and differences.
- Empty Bowls
Empty Bowls serves as an educational program about hunger and homelessness and as a local fundraiser. The idea for Empty Bowls is simple-participants decorate ceramic bowls and purchase the bowl for a good cause. The bowls serve as a reminder that there are always “Empty Bowls” in the world.
- GLBT Community
The Office of Multicultural Affairs provides an inclusive, affirming, safe and welcoming environment for individuals and allies of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and expressions. The Office works to enhance awareness, understanding, and advocacy of the LGBTQ student community.
- MBARC (Men Begin Achieving Results Collectively)
A program is designed to support the educational and professional aspirations of incoming freshmen and transfer male students from historically underserved populations. The goal of the program is to help students succeed academically, to fully immerse themselves in college life and to enhance their life management skills.
