Share our Similarities. Celebrate our Differences.

The Multicultural Student Council (MSC) serves to promote and celebrate intercultural enrichment and diversity at Utah Valley University through programs and events, geared for all students of diverse populations*.  Through MSC programs and events, student leaders are able to promote academic success and strengthen student involvement.
