Our Vision

The Office for Intercultural Student Belonging is dedicated to providing academic, personal, social, and cultural support to students through mentorship, empowerment, scholarship, and service.

Our intentions are to cultivate cultural confidence amongst community members by encouraging them to responsibly express their perceptions about or bring awareness to diverse topics, allowing all to benefit from honest, open, and equitable events, programs, and conversations.

This office prides itself in being a major resource to historically excluded populations and allies.
