The purpose of the Multicultural Affairs Committee for the academic year 2015-2016 is to nurture an environment that is welcoming and respectful to the many underrepresented cultures on our campus by making recommendations to the Student Executive Board to improve multicultural awareness and by increasing on-campus multicultural programming. The committee will work with other offices and organizations on campus, such as the Global Engagement Office, the Office for Diversity and Intercultural Initiatives, the Office of Spiritual Life, the International Club, the Chinese Students and Scholars Association, the Latino Student Organization, the Black Student Union, the National Panhellenic Council and its respective members, Delta Xi Phi, and others, to plan activities and events intended to promote cultural exchange and cross-cultural dialogues on campus. As an ad-hoc committee to the Office of the President, the Committee will also serve as an Advisory Committee to the Student Executive Board in order to insure the representation of minority voices in the Student Government Association.
