The Multicultural Center offers programs and events which support and advance the university's commitment to cultural diversity.

We offer programs to educate the university community about the unique contributions of underrepresented student populations at Ball State 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.
