Resources for Students
The Department of Multicultural Services provides multiple support services for current and prospective students from underrepresented populations and diversity education programs that foster inclusive learning environments for all students. Multicultural Services promote student success through advocacy, mentoring, academic support, diversity education, and the enhancement of life skills. The Department of Multicultural Services is an excellent resource for ALL students. We believe that it is important to celebrate differences while uniting as an Aggie family.
Multicultural Services’ programming efforts are geared toward diversity education, student success, outreach and leadership development. The department is also the home of several student organizations and programs that promote leadership development and personal growth. These include University Awareness for Cultural Togetherness (U-ACT); Whoopstock Unity Festival; Maximizing Educational Development through Academic and Leadership Skills (MEDALS); Asian Presidents’ Council; Encouraging Respect, Acceptance and Scholarship through Education (E“RAS”E); African American Student Leadership Institute (AASLI); Southwestern Black Student Leadership Conference (SBSLC); ExCELlence uniting Culture, Education and Leadership (ExCEL) Student Success Program; Institute for the Development of Asian American Leaders (IDEAAL); and Hispanic Presidents’ Council.
