About Us

It is our mission to build a supportive environment across multiple dimensions of diversity through services that promote social justice and student success.


We seek to:

  • Support students of marginalized communities with advocacy services that increase their success.
  • Magnify awareness and comprehension of diversity issues through programs, events and Safe Zone training.
  • Assist the campus community and aid student organizations that align with our mission in order to expand their efforts to culitvate an inclusive community at the university.


The Office of Multicultural Student Affairs strives to educate each member of the university community. Through understanding the individual responsibility they carry, Carolinians can create a community of acceptance for all individuals as well as nurture an atmosphere of inclusion and positive social change.
