Multicultural Affairs

Multicultural Affairs strives to create innovative programs and initiatives which help support building advocacy, increase retention for students of color, and enhance awareness and appreciation of cultural and racial diversity. We work collaboratively with student organizations, faculty, staff, and community partners.

The Intercultural Center, the physical home of Multicultural Affairs, is a resource to be utilized by the entire UNC Asheville community. Students, faculty, and staff are assured that everyone—regardless of race, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status—is welcomed in this safe space. The center is multipurpose and students are encouraged to gather, study, and socialize within its corridors.
