What We Do

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. The MCC champions collaborative efforts focusing on diversity. The MCC provides an inclusive space where students can engage academically, culturally, and socially. We are committed in providing students with meaningful and strategic opportunities that will help them grow professionally and personally, as a way to prepare them to live in a diverse and global society.


The MCC will be an innovative leader in support, inclusivity, and cultural engagement through intentional relationship building and strategic programming.

Hours of Operation

The office is open from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday during the Academic Year.

USI Creed

Member of the USI community...

I will practice personal and academic integrity; I will reject and confront all manifestations of discrimination while striving to learn from differences in people, ideas, and opinions;

I will demonstrate concern for others, their feelings, their property, and their need for conditions which support their work and development;

Allegiance to these ideals requires that I refrain from and discourage behaviors which threaten the freedom and respect every individual deserves.
