Multicultural Student Services

Student Centers

The Student Centers are learning communities that promote the understanding of and appreciation for cultural and ethnic diversity. At each of the four Centers—African American, Asian American and Pacific Islander, Chicanx Latinx, and Undocumented Initiatives and our partner Center with the Native American Student Center — you can find academic support and build strong, lasting friendships.

African American Student Center

Our mission is to provide an environment that is conducive to inspired learning for all students at Washington State University through academic, socio-cultural and career focused services. Although our services are culturally unique to the “black” community it is our hope that all members of the university embrace our rich history, language and life style.

Asian American and Pacific Islander Student Center

The Asian American & Pacific Islander (AAPI) Student Center is committed to provide holistic services and programs that assist Washington State University to retain, develop and assist AAPI students in achieving their highest education potential. The Center is also committed to explore, educate, and celebrate the rich diversity within Asian American & Pacific Islander communities.

Chicanx Latinx Student Center

Our Mission at the Chicanx Latinx Student Center is to promote academic success and achievement for all students especially those of Latin/Spanish ethnicity, culture, community, heritage and linguistic backgrounds. Therefore, the Center provides academic guidance, programming, professional services, and connections to promote the students’ academic success and personal development by creating a positive, safe, encouraging, nurturing and professional environment where students take on Personal Responsibility In Developing Excellence (PRIDE).
