Our Story...

Speak up Speak out

The current MLDO office theme, Speak up Speak out, was chosen to serve as a reminder that if you see something that is not right, just, or ethical you have the power to ensure it doesn't continue by using your voice.  


Our Story

...where the President knows your name.

We feel fortunate to have a President who often knows you by name and is frequently seen attending various student events and diversity trainings. Whether you are students, faculty, or staff we want this to be a welcoming place for you.

Our Story

Kente Ceremony 2014

The Kente Ceremony has a deep institutional history and is an important experience for our multicultural students. Find out more or sign up to attend!


The Multicultural Life and Diversity Office believes that diversity is an essential part of the pursuit of academic excellence and it enriches and strengthens the community.  Sharing diverse experiences and perspectives aids in the creation and sustaining of an inclusive campus community of engaged scholars and global citizens.  

"We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to excercise our diversity.  We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openess, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion." 

- Max de Pree
