International Students and Intercultural Programs
Intercultural Program logoMission

The goal of the Intercultural Program is to engage the campus and ourselves in learning about different cultures and identities, including sexual orientation, gender, religion, race, socioeconomic status, ability, and body type, as well as the intersections of these identities. Intercultural Programs also advocates for an inclusive campus for all students and works to create change on campus, in the nation, and in the world.
