Center for Intercultural Engagement

Vision Statement

The vision of Intercultural Engagement is to foster a diverse and inclusive environment where all students can engage in meaningful relationships across differences with other students, faculty, and staff. We aim to support the understanding of and appreciation for diversity, and empower students to be critical thinkers and graduate as leaders who effect positive change towards a more just society.

Mission Statement

Intercultural Engagement exists to provide opportunities for all students to develop as leaders who explore, understand and engage with areas of diversity and social justice.

Additionally, we provide support and advocacy for students from historically underrepresented communities (including but not limited to students from underrepresented racial, ethnic and religious communities, students in the LGBTQ and Ally communities and first generation college students) to succeed academically and socially.
