35th Anniversary of the MSC

The Multicultural Student Center was founded in 1988 to support the academic life of students of color at UW-Madison. For the past 35 years, we have served as a home away from home for students of color, providing spaces, programs and services where diverse and intersectional identities are centered, affirmed and celebrated. 

Today, the MSC includes nine staff members and four identity centers: the Black Cultural Center (2017), APIDA Student Center (2019), Latinx Cultural Center (2019) and Indigenous Student Center (2021). We are a hub for multicultural student organizations and the convener of campus-wide heritage and history months, as well as yearlong programming that honors our identities and experiences.

Join us as we celebrate our rich history and prepare for a brighter future!
