Multicultural Programs

 Mission

Our mission is to identify and eliminate barriers to an equitable and diverse environment.  We serve as a catalyst in assisting the Edinboro community in creating a climate that promotes civility, respect, and sensitivity. Our goal is for all students, faculty, and staff to obtain understanding and foster awareness of different cultures, languages, and peoples.


FAQs

What are some of the things we do? We sponsor, co-sponsor, and support academic, social, and cultural events on campus and in the community.  Some events include, and are not limited to, the Cultural Heritage Month Series, student leadership conferences, and academic celebrations.

How can I get involved?  Feel free to contact us or just stop by the Campus Life Office.  If you or someone you know is interested in something specific, we can help provide you with information, advice, and/or referrals to additional resources.
