Multicultural Affairs


The Office of Multicultural Affairs seeks to Empower Emporia State University students from historically disenfranchised communities to improve their college experience by increasing access to academic, civic leadership, and cultural diversity training opportunities. We lead the charge in programming of cultural events on campus which promotes diversity awareness, cultural pride, and collaborative efforts between registered student organizations of seemingly distinct interests. We provide a culture of civic dialogue and a campus-wide “safe space” for students to develop their cultural identity without fear of harassment and with the support of others striving to do the same. We strive to work with members of Emporia’s diverse community groups to improve the cultural empathy all of Emporians and the quality of life for students attending Emporia State University.

  • Group or individual diversity awareness presentations
  • Multicultural News (electronic newsletter)
  • Academic success workshops, tutoring, and peer mentoring
