Multicultural Student Affairs at the Polytechnic campus

The mission of the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs is to increase student awareness about our substantial international, cultural and ethnically diverse population as well as provide comprehensive support for first generation students and students from low-income families. The Office of Multicultural Student Affairs will also provide ample educational opportunities pertaining to the analysis of similarities and differences in all people and will be facilitated in ways which encourage inclusion and reverence for the students, faculty and staff of Arizona State University and the greater community at large.




Message from the Director

On behalf of Arizona State University, the Division of Student Affairs and the Department of Multicultural Student Affairs, let me welcome you to the Polytechnic campus and we look forward to engaging and supporting you throughout your ASU experience. The Department of Multicultural Student Affairs is located in the Administration building, room 120D, which provides a common central location for students to develop lasting relationships with the rest of the campus. We offer you a variety of resources and a wide breadth of programs, services, and knowledge that can be accessed from various points of this Web site. For those that are attending ASU as your initial collegiate experience, I would like congratulate you and confirm your decision to continue your academic odyssey at one of the leading public research universities in the nation. For those students continuing with us from previous semesters, we look to utilize your knowledge and expertise in helping those new to our family facilitate their exciting inaugural experiences with faculty and staff members alike. Once again, on behalf of Arizona State University, I’d like to welcome you to Arizona State University and I wish you the best of times in your educational experience.
