At the Center for Multicultural Affairs, providing a welcoming place where students and other university members can express themselves is paramount.
Advocacy, advising, support, mentoring services, and other services and programs offered are designed to help students empower themselves to explore, develop, and realize their academic, personal, and cultural strengths, as well as help them make valuable connections within the university community.
For more than four decades, the Center has been instrumental in helping CU tap diversity as a vital educational and societal resource. Opportunities for the wider university community to enhance their understanding and appreciation of diverse communities are available through CMA's diversity awareness and education program.
