WELCOME TO THE MULTICULTURAL CENTER
USI's Multicultural Center (MCC) was established in 1994 to enhance the personal and academic success of students by preparing them to be responsible citizens in a multicultural society. Opportunities are created to provide cultural interaction between students, the campus and the community at large to provide outreach experiences and to promote cultural awareness and sensitivity. We accomplish this by sponsoring programs, providing services, advising organizations, hosting events and conducting diversity training both on and off campus, as well as assisting in the recruitment of students.

Latinx Heritage Month Speaker
During Latinx Heritage Month (September 15 - October 15), the Multicultural Center hosts a guest speaker who focuses on the complexities of Latinos in the United States, whether that be culture, identity, immigration, or even history. The event is not only inspirational and educational, but it also allows students to embrace the celebration and the occasion of Latinx Heritage Month.
Join the Multicultural Center in celebrating Latinx Heritage Month by attending this year's keynote speaker event. This year's speaker is Abraham Brown, who is an entrepreneur, business owner, Latino advocate, and community organizer. The event will take place on Thursday, October 26, 2023, in Carter Hall at 6 p.m.
