MASS LogoDiversity. Inclusion.
It’s who we are.
It’s what we do. 

Welcome to the Office of Multicultural Academic Student Services. Within the Center for Inclusion and Diversity, our office plays a critical role in providing the campus community with various opportunities to create awareness regarding the diversity that exists at our university. We accomplish this goal through our cultural programming efforts, scholarship opportunities, minority-mentoring initiatives, student engagement and so much more. 

Above and beyond our programs and resources, we strive to engender and maintain an inclusive environment where we CELEBRATE our diversity. Doing so presents our students' continual opportunities for personal growth and development. We also direct our energies to EDUCATE ourselves and those we serve in order to achieve appropriate levels of mindfulness and sensitivity to build bridges for a better tomorrow. 

According to the distinguished author and speaker Ola Joseph, “Diversity is not about how we differ. Diversity is about embracing one another’s uniqueness.” Multicultural Academic Student Services is here to support your journey of cultural exploration and self-discovery. So, get involved and stay connected with us. It is our honor to serve you. 

Take care,
