The Multicultural Center offers programs that educate the Ball State community about the unique contributions of underrepresented student populations at the University. We also address the unique needs and issues of students of color through initiatives that provide support and guidance throughout the college experience. We celebrate the achievements of faculty, staff, and students in promoting diversity and multiculturalism.
