Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Multicultural Resource Center

The mission of the Office of Multicultural Affairs and the Multicultural Resource Center is to promote cultural awareness and appreciation of cultural diversity and to foster intercultural and cross-cultural understanding. To increase awareness of and respect for the differences inherent in the diverse UNCG community, the Office plans events throughout the year highlighting African American, African, Asian, Hispanic, and Native American cultures; the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; and topics related to social justice, human rights, spirituality, LGBTQ, and women.

To promote the celebration, understanding, and exploration of our multicultural world, the Multicultural Resource Center provides a cultural library featuring books, videos, DVDs, and magazines as well as a collection of activities designed to help highlight diversity education.

In addition to the presentation of special programs and educational offerings throughout the academic year, the Office also strives to build positive advocacy and collaborative relationships with students presenting the African, African American, Hispanic and Latino/Latina, Asian and Asian American, Native American, LGBTQ, and other multicultural communities on campus.

The Office also strives to build ally relationships with the general student body and partnerships with UNCG departments and community organizations.
