Multicultural Services Mission Statement

Missouri State University's Multicultural Services is the unit in the Division of Student Affairs that exists to foster and support the intellectual, social, and cultural development of all students, especially those from diverse cultural backgrounds. Together, these programs and offices promote and celebrate diversity by creating a cultural agenda for the university community, and in doing so, help retain and encourage our diverse students as they matriculate. By providing academic and cultural programming and services that are relevant to the experiences of all of our students with an emphasis on diverse student populations, we assist students in thriving and connecting with their peers, mentors, faculty, and staff here at Missouri State University.

Offices within Multicultural Services include the Office of Multicultural Programs, Access & Success Programs, and TRIO Programs.
