The primary mission of the Multicultural Student Center is to collaboratively strengthen and sustain an inclusive campus where all students, particularly students of color and other historically underserved students, can realize an authentic Wisconsin Experience.




We accomplish this by:

Providing an inclusive and student-centered space to socialize, study, organize, and build friendships.

Supporting the development and success of multicultural students in organizations.

Creating leadership, academic, and career development opportunities.

Providing educational workshops and events in order to create an inclusive and welcome campus.

Advising and advocating for students who face challenges on campus because of their racial or other marginalized identity.

Principles of the MSC:

All people are welcomed in the MSC.
*We utilize the phrase “ Students of Color (SOC)” to intentionally include those who may identify as Black, African-American, Asian, South Asian, Pacific Islander, Asian Pacific American, Latino/a, Chicano/a, Hispanic, Native American, multiracial, and any others who consider themselves people of color.
The MSC utilizes a social justice framework as we aim to serve oppressed groups in our community.
