Diversity and Multicultural Affairs

Mission

The mission of the Diversity and Multicultural Affairs office is to create a culturally enhanced campus environment through inclusive education, advocacy, social justice, diversity, and leadership opportunities. It is our goal to provide and promote diverse events such as lectures, concerts, cultural awareness programs, films, and workshops that will assist our students in an understanding of world views that influence their work and relationships.

Students interested in learning more about cultural differences and/or programming are encouraged to contact the Director of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs.

MHU Community Initiatives

In addition to working with our students, the Diversity and Multicultural Affairs office collaborates with the administration and the university Intercultural Committee to develop strategic goals for inclusive education across the MHU campus. This includes faculty and staff focus groups, student focus groups, campus climate surveys, professional development, advocacy and support, inclusive curriculum, and commitment to diversity.

Programming

The Diversity and Multicultural Affairs office sponsors numerous cultural programs each year, including:

  • MLK Jr. Commemorative Programs
  • Diversity Lecture Series
  • Unity Candlelight Vigil
  • Diversity Seminar and Workshops
  • Other events are planned to recognize nationally observed months, such as Black History Month, Native American History Month, Women’s History Month, Asian Pacifi c History Month, and Hispanic History Month.
