Student Support

Academic Success

Multicultural Student Services academic success initiatives aim to provide academic opportunities, information, programs, and a sense of connection to the diverse communities we serve. 

Peer Mentoring Programs

Individual & Student Organization Advising

MSS professional staff members work in collaboration with student leaders, student organizations, identity communities, and individual students to provide support, resources, mentorship, and advocacy from an identity-based advising framework. 

Welcome Week & Graduation Celebrations

Multicultural Student Services hosts an annual Multicultural Welcome event, as well as a new student retreat, which provide great opportunities to meet new people from diverse backgrounds, make new friends, and connect with important university and community resources.

MSS graduation ceremonies celebrate diverse members of the graduating class. As we have supported our students during their time at UVA, we also want to acknowledge their college journey, celebrate this huge accomplishment, and support them as they go out into the world with their degrees.
