Multicultural Student Services strives to teach and provide intentional programs and services that embrace and validate multicultural education, promote opportunities for intercultural learning, exchange, and appreciation and cultivates an atmosphere of inclusion, diversity, equity, and social change.


We embrace identities, languages, traditions, and values through cultural frameworks that center student narratives by providing advocacy, education, and programming.


  1. Increase retention and completion rates by continuing to provide intentional and appropriate support programs for students.
  2. Center student narratives by providing advocacy, education, and cultural programming.
  3. Support outreach and recruiting efforts seeking to increase student representation from historically underrepresented and marginalized populations.
  4. Develop fundraising strategies to increase program support and student scholarships.

About US

Our purpose is to serve students from ethnically diverse, as well as historically underrepresented and marginalized backgrounds. Since it's inception, Multicultural Student Services has had a name change, added five initiative programs, two student leadership programs, and served thousands of students, staff, and faculty throughout the years. We are committed to creating spaces of not only inclusion and diversity, but equity and justice and ensuring that our students, staff, and faculty know that UVU welcomes and incorporates their voices and lived experiences into our campus community.
