Mission of Multicultural Student Affairs
The mission of Multicultural Student Affairs (MSA) is to provide quality services and programs that support and enhance the collegiate experience, particularly for under-served students. We seek to foster a learning environment that enriches the cultural, educational, professional, and social lives of students, providing opportunities for holistic development. Through advising, advocacy, and outreach, MSA is dedicated to an inclusive and diverse community and helps students excel individually and collectively.
To achieve our mission and best serve students, Multicultural Student Affairs focuses on four primary areas of student development. By participating in our programs and utilizing services, students should be able to:
- Utilize pluralistic knowledge to engage in self-reflection and communicate effectively with others. (Intra/Interpersonal Relations)
- Participate actively in diverse experiences across the Northwestern University and local communities. (Civic and Community Engagement)
- Advance their growth through skill development and experiential learning. (Leadership)
- Respect, act and reflect on ethics, community values, and cultural beliefs. (Responsible Independence)
