The Office of Multicultural Student Services

Update: It is with a heavy heart that we regret to inform our MSS graduates and their families that the in-person Multicultural Graduation Ceremony has been cancelled due to the current health crisis. This takes nothing away from the achievement of our MSS students. We congratulate them and wish them a bright future ahead. 

Our Mission

The Office of Multicultural Student Services (MSS) seeks to facilitate the best undergraduate experience for multicultural, first generation, and other underrepresented students through the provision of culturally relevant services to enhance their learning and development and foster their successful transition, adjustment, persistence, achievement, and graduation.
