Advocacy & Outreach

The Office of Intercultural Engagement  has several Student Advocacy & Outreach initiatives:

  • Intercultural Leadership Council
    The Office of Intercultural Engagement organizes a Intercultural Leadership 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.
  • LGBTQ community- The Office of Intercultural Engagement  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.
