• Multicultural Alliance

    The Multicultural Alliance is an initiative that was first created in 1998.  The Alliance consists of a coalition of leaders and members of student of color and international student organizations. The Alliance provides opportunities for members to network, collaborate, share information and resources, and serve as advocates for each other. The Alliance is chaired by the multicultural alliance coordinator, a student employed in the Center for Multicultural and International Student Affairs.
