About Us

Multicultural Student Services provides programs and services to meet the needs of a diverse student body. Through MSS, students can participate in mentoring programs, leadership development programs, intercultural education, success programs, multicultural community development initiatives, receive individual and group support, cultural organization support, and engage with our five centers: Multicultural Student Center (MSC), LGBTQ Center (QC), Latinx Student Center (LSC), Interfaith Student Center (IFSC), and Asian American Student Center (AASC).  These opportunities are open to all students.

Centered on the success and well-being of historically marginalized students, MSS steers support toward specific identity communities, including Asian, Pacific Islander, and South Asian American students; DACA and undocumented students; Hispanic/Latinx students; Native/Indigenous students; Middle Eastern/North African students; and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and gender fluid students.
