Center for Multicultural Affairs

A Division of Student Academic Affairs

Our mission is to empower the students at Marist College by providing academic supportive services that lead students to successfully complete a college degree and become active contributing members of the global society of the future, and engaging the Marist College community at large to ensure the academic, professional and social success of all students by creating a climate of justice, promoting access and equity, and maintaining an educational environment that cultivates the rich contributions of all cultures.


The Center for Multicultural Affairs strives to create a culturally competent environment by

  • Providing programs and activities to assist the Marist student in making a successful and enriching transition to the Marist campus environment.

  • Advocating in the interest of the first generation, racial/ethnic or otherwise underrepresented student in areas of personal, social and cultural development.

  • Providing opportunities for students to develop academically and socially by providing support in areas of leadership development, cultural identity, self identity, career exploration and goal setting for the future.

  • Acting as a resource and support to student groups and culturally focused clubs.
