Intercultural Life

All are welcome here. 

We support the needs of under-represented American and international students. All are welcome. We strive to create an environment that is supportive, inclusive, and welcoming to historically underrepresented student groups.

We want to see our students acquire an understanding of the myriad of cultures that exist in our society and acquire the skills to live, celebrate and appreciate the diversity of those cultures.

We are here for you

We’ve got you covered. From personal and academic advising to helping transition to college life and information on scholarships, internships, and employment opportunities we are here to help.

We see you

We hear you and we see you. We see our first generation students. We see our underrepresented students. We see you. And we’re ready to help you achieve your potential through mentoring programs and support from faculty and staff to students from all backgrounds.

We recognize race and gender traditionally have been markers of underrepresented groups. In order to build a community of growth, inclusion, and global perspective, we also offer intentional programming and support for students who identify with underrepresented groups based on religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, nationality, low socio-economic or first-generation status.
