The mission of Multicultural Affairs is two-fold:

  • To promote a campus and community environment to help students succeed academically and socially by using all available resources and services.
  • To create an environment in which all students, faculty and staff can develop an appreciation for and understanding of the various cultures represented at the University.

Who do we assist?

  • Students in their overall development as they pursue a course of study. 
  • Any individual or group seeking knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of the similarities and differences represented in Washburn University’s diverse community.

How do we do this?

  • Advise and support several Multicultural Student Organizations
  • Sponsor, co-sponsor and support academic, social, cultural, and career-oriented activities and experiences throughout the year.
  • Collaborate with the campus and local community to host a variety of cultural activities.
