Enhancing diversity on campus

Multicultural Affairs


The Office of Multicultural Affairs aspires to create and support a diverse community that welcomes people of different races, cultures, ages, genders, sexual orientation, religions, socioeconomic levels, political perspectives, abilities, opinions, values and experiences.

We strive to reflect these differences in our decisions, curriculum, programs and actions.

As a university community, we seek to ensure that underrepresented groups have equal access to the education and resource opportunities available at Lenoir-Rhyne.
