Recognizing that a diverse student body enhances campus life for the entire community, Winthrop is strongly committed to attracting and maintaining a community of learners who value and appreciate diversity through integrating campus resources and programs. One such resource is the Office of Multicultural Student Life.
The Office of Multicultural Student Life partners with many areas of the university to support the social and academic success of all students focusing on the needs of minority students through culturally based programming and diversity training.
The office is designed to augment the academic, personal, cultural and social development of African American students as well as Asian American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, Jewish, Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual students and other special interest groups by offering a number of services: resources such as publications, books and video tapes; various activities during Welcome Week; a Martin Luther King Holiday Celebration; and coordination of the “More Than A Month” calendar of events, a series of activities held during the spring semester to highlight the contributions of African Americans in U. S. history.
In support of Winthrop’s commitment to enable students to live, learn and lead for a lifetime, the office of Multicultural Student Life provides opportunities to complement the classroom experience by offering special programs and assisting other offices in recognizing, appreciating and celebrating campus diversity.
