Welcome to the Cultural Centers!

La Casa Latina | Multicultural Center | Native American Student and Community Center


Mission Statement: The Cultural Centers create a student-centered inclusive environment that enriches the university experience. We honor diversity, explore social justice issues, celebrate cultural traditions, and foster student identities, success and leadership.

Learning Goals: Leadership - Intercultural Communication -  Identity Development -  Social Justice

Student Engagement Opportunities

The Cultural Centers Leadership Team is comprised of three student-centered entities that promote professional development, leadership advancement and cultural awareness. Opportunities to get involved include employment openings that include everything from Receptionist to Public Relations & Marketing to Administrative positions. We also host a Programming Team that works in a highly co-collaborative/creative environment to develop events, activities and productions. Additionally, students can join the Advisory Council where they work with community, staff and fellow students to guide the vision of the centers. All students are welcome, not just those who identify as student of color.
