The Multicultural Initiatives Office welcomes, celebrates and supports students from all backgrounds. Alvernia University promotes understanding, unity and appreciation of the growing diversity of our campus, affirming the inherent value and dignity of each person, regardless of race, gender differences, national origin or religion. The campus community recognizes ethnic awareness with respect and openness to the richness and wisdom of various groups so that students can prosper academically, and socially.
Through the full use of all institutional services and resources, the office works together with all areas of the campus community to implement multicultural programs such as a calendar of social and cultural events, and other co-curricular activities designed to support the success of all students. The Multicultural Initiatives staff is available to students on both a formal and informal basis to discuss issues, implement ideas, and help problem-solve.
Our office has an open door policy and encourages members of the community to visit and share your program ideas, questions, to get updates, or to volunteer with multicultural projects.
