The primary mission of the Dowdy Multicultural Center is to maintain a supportive environment that promotes the academic achievement and personal well-being of multicultural students. This is accomplished by providing a range of services, programs, and activities that enhance and support the academic and personal development goals of multicultural students. Specifically the goals of the office are to:

  • orient students to the culture of the institution;
  • help students to determine and assess their educational goals and academic skills;
  • provide programs and services to help students attain or refine the academic skills necessary to perform well in the classroom and to achieve their educational goals;
  • promote the intellectual, career, social, and moral development of students;
  • promote and deepen students' appreciation and understanding of their own as well as other cultures and heritages; and
  • provide training in leadership and other personal skills.

In addition, the office is committed to working with other offices and units to improve awareness of and appreciation for racial and cultural diversity for the greater University community.
