A place to celebrate diversity. A community to belong to. A group to help make change in the world. The staff at our Student Engagement Center help support inclusive engagement on our campus for students in a myriad of ways, including:

  • supporting an array of multicultural clubs, organizations, and affinity groups 
  • connecting students to resources on campus to support their needs
  • providing resources for social justice advocacy and allyship
  • collaborating with campus partners to celebrate affinity days/weeks/months that elevate inclusive ideas

We encourage students to explore what we have available, and to partner with staff to expand the ever-growing opportunities.
