The mission of UNT’s Multicultural Center is to cultivate a campus
environment where people of all identities and experiences can thrive.
They foster the success and awareness of historically underrepresented
student populations with an emphasis on disability, ethnicity, gender,
interfaith, race and sexual orientation. The Center’s programs and
activities are developed to increase the awareness, understanding, and
intersectionality of the various identities in the UNT community.
From the Center’s earliest iteration, the Center for Ethnic Affairs,
through many changes in directorship, funding issues, and student
unrest, the main goals of this department have been to educate students
on cultural diversity, uplift students in finding their strengths, and
encouraging them to become part of a community in order to reach success
in their college careers and in their lives.
